In Reply to: Gettie B. DECKARD b. 1876 d. 1972 - Grayson Co. TX by Martha Tucker of 1676

Combined info from TX Dth Idx and SSDI:

Deckard, Gettie B., b 31 Oct 1876; d 29 Mar 1972 Grayson Co, TX; last residence Whitesboro, Grayson Co, TX; widowed; SS card issued in TX.

SSDI actually shows date of death "15" Mar 1972.

A copy of his death certificate should show the names of his parents, accuracy only as good as the knowledge of the informant. On the other hand he filled out the application for his Soc Sec card and the names of his parents should be on there plus his residence at the time of the application and other data, too.

You might post a query on this forum -- need death record lookup for 1972 in Grayson Co, TX. You might find someone who will look at the record for you and send you the names of the parents shown on that record.

On that 1900 census John is shown owning farm free and clear. Check land and probate records, see who shows up as his heirs. Gettie is not a common name and if Gettie is shown as his heir, there you are.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
