**Note: FAG contributor, Blanche Keating Collie (#47962376) provided the following.
"The first wife of John Richard Keating was Marie Louise WOOLWINE. Perhaps this name had some effect on the individual who provided the error on Ollie Don Britton's death certificate that his mother was Martha WOOLWEIGH."
His mother is Martha Jane Keating 1850-1900 and the marriage of his parents is recorded in Panola County, Texas, Marriage Book 67 - "William M. Britton and Martha Jane Keating were married March 21, 1872."
