Hi, I am trying to find the obituaries or cemeteries for the following; SSindex lists Jackson Laverne Whitley born 23 mar 1924 in Arkansas, died 4 oct 1989 (Alameda 01), 65 years. According to family he was in the navy and died in an Oakland hospital (maybe veterans). His wife was Eva. We are trying to get a copy of death certificate or find archived obit (no success yet).
Also a Jack Van Zoen and his wife Lee were living in the Albany, Alameda, CA area, but a few years ago, my mother-in-law received back the Christmas card she sent with a note written on the enveloped "deceased". She is trying to find out when/where he died. His wife Lee had been in a nursing home (probably in the same area). I can not find a death notice for them, and am not sure how to locate a death certificate without a death date.
If anyone can help or point me in the right direction, please respond.
