If you know when and where Frank and Amelia died, obtain copies of their death certificates.

Again, taking the less common name, Droze, I didn't find Myrtle or husband Chester, but maybe a son??

Chester R. Droze, b 21 Jun 1915; d 15 Jul 1996; last residence Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Co, OK; SS card issused in TX.

Using an online directory there are two Drozes in Oklahoma City, OK. I would try them, maybe they have helpful family info. If you just put in name of Droze, there are four in the state of OK, two of them are in Tulsa.

I tried just the surname of Droze in TX Dth Idx Online 1964-1998, and only one Droze came up (wish I had a few names like that, less common). Combined info below, this Walter might be a brother to the above Chester R. Droze.

Walter Lee Droze, b 2 Mar 1917; d 7 Dec 1991 Dallas Co, TX; last residence TX; SS carc issued in TX.

Using online directory, Droze in TX, up come two, one is for a Walter Droze in Irving (Dallas Co.) Sometimes a widow will leave phone in husband's name so people won't know she is alone. And, a Warren Droze in Austin. If this name is that uncommon, I'd be contacting anyone in OK or TX with that surname.

I tried for Georgie and Arch Harrell, did find an Arch:

Arch Harrell, b 29 Jan 1889; d 19 Apr 1965 Hill Co, TX; last residence TX; SS card issued in TX; single [can also mean widowed, separated or divorced]

Since I could not find Georgie (even tried Georgia), she may have died prior to index, which began in 1964. I would check the Hill Co, TX GenWeb site, see if Arch and Georgie are buried there. Some GenWeb counties are putting their cemeteries online. If not on the county site, be sure to check the archived section of the TXGenWeb Project. If you haven't used GenWeb sites, let me know, I'll pass along some info on them. (^_^)
