Although the title of this site is 1890-1976, Texas didn't officially begin keeping vital records until 1903 and some counties weren't too good at doing it until a little later, so you may not find DC for some in the early 1900s. Your father's DC is on there, also, but I thought you might already have his.

Also, keep in mind DCs are only as accurate as the knowledge of the informants. This looks like the Josephine, daughter of Peter Whitus (sister of the above Carrie), but mother's name doesn't match. With a little research you could probably prove, or disprove, this one:

Name: Josephine Alice Whitworth
Death date: 04 Jan 1968
Death place: Sulpher Springs, Hopkins, Texas
Gender: Female
Race or color (on document): White
Age at death: 91 years
Estimated birth year:
Birth date: 03 Sep 1876
Birth place: Alba, Texas
Marital status: Widowed
Spouse name:
Father name: Peter Whitus
Father birth place:
Mother name: Betty Adams
Mother birth place:
Occupation: Home
Residence: Emory, Rains, Texas
Cemetery name: Emory
Burial place: Emory, Texas
Burial date:
Additional relatives: X
Film number: 2137028
Digital GS number: 4029712
Image number: 2491
Reference number: 36071
Collection: Texas Deaths, 1890-1976

These are not my lines, just thought you might like to play around with the death index and fill in even more to your information.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
