In Reply to: EUGENE NEWTON DAVIS (1851-1926) Texas by Charlotte G. Boykin of 65428

Have you tried Parker Co, TX GenWeb site? Some GenWeb counties are putting their cemeteries online. You say you tried TX for DC, but was that Austin, or did you also try Parker Co? "Handybook for Genealogists" shows Parker Co, Tx has dths beginning with 1903. I have an ancestor who died 1926 in Uvalde Co, TX, no record at the county seat - I visited the courthouse - but Austin has a complete dth cert for him. We can't figure out that one. Is your source for the location of Eugene's death from family? If so, I think I would try TX State Wide Dth Idx 1903-1940, without giving a date or county - just his name. Family traditions can sometimes be off just a little. He might have lived in Parker Co, but could have spent last couple of years living with one of his children in neighboring county, and of course, death certificates are issued where you die. You might try Soundex for 1920 census and see where he was that year.
