Combined info from TX Dth Idx and SSDI:

Worthington, Floyd, b 2 Feb 1908, d 30 Sep 2001; last residence Hearne, Robertson Co, TX; SS card issued in TX.

" Ara, w, 22 md @ 14, b TX, TX, TX
" Auth___ Lee, s, 4 8/12, b TX
" James E., s, 2 3/12, b TX

If you go to the TX Dth Idx online you will find "Hurman" Crenshaw in the index, but if you look at the digitized original copy of is death certificate you can see it is Thurman.

born 5 Mar 1902 Brazos Co, TX
died 14 Jun 1931 " " "
buried 15 Jun 1931 " " "
Father - W.T. Crenshaw
Mother - Emma Wyatt

His mother is listed too, Emma Jane Crenshaw, d 25 Mar 1937, Brazos Co, TX. Spouse, father and mother listed, also. If you look at these digitized certificates you will see more information, too.

His father is Wilborn Crenshaw (various spellings) and is on the census back to 1900 in Brazos Co, TX. Also, he's on that TX Dth Idx 1890 - 1976.;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable

Just enter first and last names, and location as Brazos, Texas.

With full date and location of death for Ara you can obtain a copy of her death certificate, which should show the names of her parents, too.

Or, you can go to the Brazos Co, TX GenWeb site -- -- on the left sidebar, click on Lookups. A volunteer is listed for vital record lookups. They could view the certificate and give you the names of Ara's parents, etc.

Could this be her?
