Hi Sheila!

Don't know if you have seen the Family Search Pilot Project that has the actual images of Texas Death Certificates 1894 -1976 (there are VERY few before 1903, and not a whole lote before 1920). I found his death certificate and you might find it inreresting. Here's the index info (But be warned, sometimes the index has wrong information).

You might note that it says he was divorced. And the informant's name is a scribble.

The Grandview Cemetery has a Cemetery Association. The contact info is posted in the Johnson Co. USGenWeb. I won't put the telephone here, as those goofy internet bots might pick it up. But here's the link:

Hope this helps.
