      :D thanks for referencing me to my own personal website. LOL It happens often :)

      and I'm such an idiot and no wonder no one found anything (palmface) I gave the wrong birth year in my original email.

      Last time I tried to receive a copy of his death certificate they couldn't find it. That was 15 years ago, now that the world is electronic I should try again.

      I find Edward's birthyear as 1899, not 1889 -

      pic of headstone - http://clan-history.com/showmedia.php?mediaID=183
      also: (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=dillard&GSfn=ed&GSbyrel=in&GSdy=1953&GSdyrel=in&GSst=38&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=14876275&)

      Maybe his death certificate would have some extra info -
      like, who reported it, and what he died of -

      California Death Index, 1940-1997
      Name: Edward Russell Dillard
      Social Security #: 443059412
      Birth Date: 13 Apr 1899 - Birthplace: Oklahoma
      Death Date: 4 Feb 1953 - Death Place: Los Angeles (County)
      Mother's Maiden Name: Elliott
      Father's Surname: Dillard

      World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
      Name: Edward Russell Dillard
      County: Grady
      State: Oklahoma
      Birth Date: 13 Apr 1899

      Unfortunately, I didn't find anything about his death in California.
