Note regarding search for headstone
From volunteer photographer, Jan 2014
"I have searched the Wise County records for Oscar. I have checked the death records and obit records here and there are only 2, Carrie Lettie died 1937 and Gertrude died 1904. I see on the death certificate you have provided that he died in Bexar County Texas. I have also checked the Oaklawn Cemetery here and I could not find his name listed in Any cemetery in Wise County. There are a few headstone in the Oaklawn Cemetery with the name Bellah and I am assuming they may be related. I am going to leave this request open and make this note there also."
