Combined info from TX Dth Idx Online and SSDI:
Dorsey Goodall, b 1 Aug 1896; d 22 Sep 1975 Harris Co, TX; last residence Houston, Harris Co, TX; SS card issued in TX.
There is a Matthew on the TX idx d 1987 in Polk Co, TX, but does not show up on SSDI, so assume this is your Matthew's son, and was not old enough to be collecting Soc Sec.
Is this the wife of your Matthew?
Lucinda Goodall, b 11 Aug 1911; d 20 Sep 1974 Polk Co, TX; single; last residence Livingston, Polk Co, TX; SS card issued in TX.
