There's a very good possibility that the below is your John.I would get a copy of his SS application.The cost is $27.00.It will show parental info, including his mother's maiden name.This would be a more accurate source of info than a death certificate, as John filled it out himself. John WILSON Birth Date: 7 Feb 1883 Death Date: Jun 1972 Social Security Number:463-60-8989 State or Territory Where Number Was Issued:Texas Death Residence Localities ZIP Code: 76086 Localities:Weatherford, Parker, Texas
The reason I think the above is him, is because I found this: Maude WILSON Birth Date: 22 Jun 1885 Death Date: Oct 1986 Social Security Number:463-60-8990 State or Territory Where Number Was Issued:Texas Death Residence Localities ZIP Code: 76086 Localities:Weatherford, Parker, Texas
