Re: Death Certificates

I agree with Joan and Betty. There is no reason to give the parent's names to obtain a death certificate. Someone in the clerk's office doesn't know what they are talking about or you caught them on a bad day.
Perhaps this will help.
From "The First 100 Years in Cooke County", by A. Morton Smith.
In 1859, Mark, Sam, Lewis and Rufus Cole moved to Sivell's Bend.
W.R. Strong came to Cooke Co. in June 1846 when he was 12 years old.
Cyrus and W.R. Strong were members of Texas State Volunteers in 1864.
Good Luck!
