Thompson/Heidenheimer/Bell Co/1880+

Searching for Grandparents who came from
Al to Heidenhiemer Bell Co, Tx. near Rosebud, Falls Co., Tx.
Jerry J Thompson + Manery (Manerva)Mcinnish
both born in GA.about 1850's moved to AL.
According to a family letter Jerry died and left 3 orphan children. They were taken back to Al and raised by Susan Mcinnish ,they are found listed with her in Randolph CO AL on the 1910 census. the children are:
Louisa b 1890 Al-(Al archive midwife record):
William Jackson b 1894 Al(my DAD)(no record of birth):and
Daniel Webster b1896 Tx.(no record of birth)
Both parents are reported to have died shortly after Dan's birth.
I would like to get a death cert for them and a birth cert for Dan, but have had no luck.
Appreciate any info on these folks. With all the Thompsons can someone please give me a clue where to look. Or tell me anything about them, especially the Thompson family. In the letter written from Texas back to relatives in Al telling of Jerrys death it said he was attended by a Dr. Bailey, of Rosebud. It also said they (?) were waiting for a guardian to be appointed, shouldn't there be a
record of that someplace? The letter seemed to be written by a sibling of Jerrys, so there may be Thompson kin still there? There was also mention of a wagon and horses, and using then to support the children, until their fate was decided, shouldn't there be a record of what happened to them? (Just in case there was a fuss over the children and the Thompson's were mad at the
Mcinnish's for taking the children, could you please forget it long enough to let me know about my folks.)
Thanks Trixie Luverne Gibbons
