I'm trying to find the death date of Jerald Dean Plummer (may be spelled Jeraldene) who passed away, I think, in the mid 1930's. His hometown was Metz. He was my deceased husband's father and I can't seem to find the information I'm looking for. Even the Bureau of Vital Statistics didn't have anything listed. I'd appreciate any information you might be able to find. I'm sure he would be buried somewhere around Metz.

This is more of a correction than a query. In the 1880 Iowa Soundex, the daughter of Albro B. Sheets (who lived and died in Vernon Co. Mo.)was listed as Mary, 10. This daughter was actually 10 months old then and the daughter of third wife, Emma Smith Sheets and not Mary Rebecca Flake as first thought.
