Thanks for the info Hugh. The information I am after is a death record in Texas 1876 of Nancy’s first husband James B Meldrum. This record is not to be found in any record office, county court office or genealogy group records. I posted the message on the Texas board hoping to find a member of the family researching the name. I am going in the back door hoping to find the answers from a family member. I will take your advice and post on the San Diego board. As I live in the UK its not too easy finding records. Regards PB.
