I has been a while since I tried to help you with this obit. If you are still having trouble, I think I might be able to help out.
I went to familysearch.org and typed in James S Hopkins. His death date was given as Dec 27 1910 not the year 1911.
If you by now have used this website it great. Go to this website and you can actually see the Texas Death Cert.
Sorry I was not able to help you more the first time.
When my husband retired we moved from Beaumont and now live in Ark. My email address is still the same.
