Hi Joan, I didn't find anything about where they died.
I did find a Hezekiah Spears, who faught in the Civil War. Side=Confederate, Regiment=Texas, Regiment Name=Griffin's Batt'n Texas Infantry; Regiment Name=Griffin's Battalion, Texas Infantry (Griffin's Regiment) (21st Infantry); Company=B; Rank In=Private; Rank Out=Private. film number=M227 roll 34. Source: National Park Service, U.S. Civil War Soldiers 1861-1865, ancestry.com. Of course I don't know if this is your Hezekiah or not.
There is also a Hezekiah Spears, Side Servied=Conderacy, State Served=Alabama; Service Records=Enlisted as Private. Source: American Civil War Soldiers
Also I found a land record for Hezekiah Spears, Land Office=Huntsville, AL; Document Number=2856; Total Acres=80.32; Misc. Doc. Nr=7406; Statutory Reference=12 Stat. 392; Act or Treaty=May 20, 1862; Entry Classification=Homestead Entry Original. Source: Bureau Land Management, Alabama Land Records, ancestry.com.
You also might post under the Surname Message Board of Spears. If there isn't one, you can ask to have one created.
To find estate records I'd search for Estate Denton County Texas. I'd also look for a genealogy society in Denton Co. Also you could call the Court House. Successful Searching!
