I have an unusual request. I wondered if anyone knows where Flow Memorial Hospital records are now housed. I know the hospital closed, but I would like to access a death record of some type for my great-grandmother who died at the hospital in April of 1980.
Interestingly, when I went to get a copy of her death certificate from Denton County this past summer, they had no record of her death. I had the funeral home pull whatever information they had (which was only a one sheet information sheet) and I just received her social security application record from the federal government. But I think that the information from Flow (if there is any) might give me enough to have the county file a death certificate (can they file delayed death certificates?).
There is no record at the state level either. I figure that either it was never filed or it was filed under an incorrect name. The clerk at Denton County went through the record book but didn't find anything.
The family researcher in me feels that she should have an official death certificate on record. Of course, the present day family knows when and where she died because we were there, but it would be nice to have in on record.
If anyone has any other ideas, I'd welcome those, too.
