Is that your George on the 1910 census in Coleman Co, TX? If so, there should be a death certificate for him. TX began to record state wide death records in 1903.

Have you checked out GenWeb sites for the counties of your research? Coleman Co, TX GenWeb shows George and Elizabeth buried in Cleveland Cemetery, and he died in 1915. If the county does not have a copy of his death certificate, check with the TX State Archives in Austin. First off they have a TX state wide death index; and should have a copy of his death certificate, too. Unless the courthouse had a fire, which often happened to early courthouses -- don't ask me how I know, sniff, sniff.

Not all records are online, not yet anyway.

I notice a few people on Rootsweb World Connect have a little bit on Washington Lumbley; and on the "Lumley" Forum, on the "go to #" box, type in 75, she's working on the William and Martha who were next door to Washington on that 1860 census. And, # 82 has some Lumbley information that looks interesting. The only thing is neither of these people have posted anything on any forum for several years, may not be around anymore.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
