Re: Virgil Newton Compton In Raines or Wood County , Texas 1893

In Reply to: Virgil Newton Compton In Raines or Wood County , Texas 1893 by Debby Turmelle of 65481

I'm not related to this family.

There will be NO death cert. available for Virgil's father for the following reason -

The Texas Vital Statistics law to register births and deaths was not passed until 1903. Texas was then and is now a dual registration state which means the local registrars retain a copy of all birth and death records for the events that take place within their jurisdiction and the state retains the original of all birth and death records for the entire State of Texas. However, the statutes for registering these events were not made mandatory until 1926. However, many local registrars did not adhere to the statutes until the late 1930ís or early 1940ís. This means some records reside only in the local registrarsí files and not with the State.
