Have you used the TX Dth Idx 1890-1976 -- http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html?..#w=;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable -- You can view digitized copy of original death record, see more details, make copies and look for others, too.

I entered surname of father, Petty and maiden name of mother, Hunt, and found about a half dozen of their children -- match with some of those on the 1900 census. By then Susan is a widow, so Elias wouldn't be on the above index. Acutally, TX didn't begin to officially keep vital records until 1903 and some counties weren't too consistent in the beginning.

On those DCs all the children, no matter where they died, were buried in the Hico Cemetery. I would be looking for Susan/Suannah and Elizas to be buried there, too.

Record for one son, Robert W. [matches son on 1900 census listed as Wallace] said he was born in Dalton, GA, and gave full name of father as Elias Lewis Petty. Other records have some slight variations on spelling of given names for both parents, but do match up.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
