Sorry for all these messages

I finally found Alf's death certificate under the name of James Alfred Pigg. Nov. 22, 1890 - April 1, 1948 in Portageville, MO. Burial at Portageville Cemetery. It is hard to make out the hand writing of the parents names. It kind of looks like Asah Pigg and Elizabeth ?????.

Jesse James Pigg

I also found another baby of Alf and Ada in the death certificate search. Jesse James Pigg. It also states mother as Ada Church... I wonder why.

Alf Pigg

Hi Charlotte,

I ran across your memorials and am so sorry you endured so many losses in such a short few years.

I also have a passion for genealogy and helping others. I was looking for death certificates on the Missouri Digital Heritage website and found Alf and Ada's son Willie Melvin Pigg. I also found Ada's death certificate and it states her father's name as Ben Taylor but on Willie's death certificate it states her name as Ada Church. Below is the website address.

I hope this helps somewhat and if you want more help from me let me know.
