Neither one of their deaths is in Ancestry or FamilySearch. I looked through the cemeteries online in Ellis Co. but didn't find either one. However, not all of the cemeteries have been indexed and some of the indexes aren't complete.

Most larger public libraries provide free access to Ancestry if you have a local library card.

The Ellis County Clerk, www.co.ellis.tx.us/index.aspx?nid=74 might have their death records.

The Ellis County Genealogical Society, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txellis/esoc.htm might have death records, obituaries or wills.

There are microfilms available from the University of Texas-Austin, www.tsl.state.tx.us/arc/local/ellis.html which cover probate and tax records and deeds. You have to go to your local library and ask them to contact the University and do an inter-library transfer for each microfilm. Then you view the film at your local library and it's returned to the University. Generally this process is free unless you live in Oregon. Successful Searching!
