I am looking for relatives of the following Tellis family members. I have included birth/death dates. I am also trying to find obits on any of the first four.
Jesse Tellis - 12/3/1892 - 2/16/1972
Carl C. Tellis - 8/10/1911 - 12/22/1980
Johnny (Johney) Tellis - 3/31/1901 - 12/22/1980
Edith Tellis - 1/20/1920 * 3/24/1972
Nettie T. Tellis - 3/20/1885 - 2/24/1955
Abe Tellis - unknown - unknown
I believe Carl and Edith were the children of Nettie and Abe. I'm guessing that Carl & Johnny were involved in some type of mishap as they both passed away on the same day.
It seems impossible to get death certificates through Texas. I've been in touch with the Dept of Health and they tell me it is not possible! True? This is my fathers' side of the family and unfortunately there is no one left to ask. (why do we always wait until it's too late?)
Any information or even a next step to follow would be greatly appreciated!
