      In the book Caldwell Newspapers Burleson County, Texas 1897 - 1929 Birth and Death Notices, Compiled by Linda Houck, I find a notice, as follows:
      "December 23 1921
      Remains of Mrs. Frances Martin, age 33 who died at Rusk arrived here Saturday and were taken to New Tabor for interment.  She was daughter of Tom Mackek living three miles east of town.  She had been ill for some time."
      On this same page there is also the note that, "There are no issues available for the years 1922 through 1927." 
      In the book Cemeteries of Burleson County, Texas, compiled by the Burleson County Historical Commission, I find on page 195:
      Tomas Macek  1856 - Jan 7, 1925.
      Provided this is the individual you are looking for, with an accurate date of death you might find an obituary in one of the Czech newspapers published at this time.
      Good luck!

      I am looking for an obituary for Tomas Macek who died in Burelson County in the 1920's!  Where should I look first?
