I don't know if you are aware of the Social Security Death Indexes. It is used frequently by genealogist for early late 1800 to early 1900 birth information. Type in your grandfather's name and see the problem with a common name such as Johnson.

You can use the advanced search options to narrow you search but that 'Johnson' name is just too common. You really need to narrow the appx. date of death.
