Tom Standmire's mother was name Fannie Austin. Based off of his death record, his dad's name was Ruthus Standmire. I have found a Rufus Standmore but not a Ruthus Standmire as of yet.

You will find the name Standmire in many different ways, and many times the census taker just wrote down what they thought they heard. Many people back then could not read or write, including census takers very well.
I did not find Rufus Standmore. You might send for Tom,s SS application. He would have had to give the info himself, so he should have known his parents names. I noticed he was 104 when he died. Maybe the person who filled out the death cert. just thought that was the parents names. It happens all the time.
I found the name as Standmore, Stanmore, Stanmire, and Standmoore. Good luck with the name.
If you know Tom,s siblings, they may have the parents listed on their death cert too.

I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.


DO NOT order the SS-5 [application record] from the SSA.

SSA now BLACKS OUT the parents names hoping to stop ID-theft.

Thanks for the info. What will they think of next. The last one I ordered not that long ago, was not blocked. They still contain more info than the parents that is very helpful, but if the parents names are blocked, I will not be ordering one again. Hopefully there can be some obits that can be found.

I ordered my last one about 8 months ago. I will check with them to make sure before I order another one. The cost is rather expensive these days, and my main reason for ordering one is for the parents names. This is only if every other source does not list the parents. I do thank you for the warning.
