Texas legislature passed law in 1903 to start filing birth and death records. Birth's in 1890's would be recorded at county level if at all. Even after the law was passed compliance wasn't enforced until years later.

Cecil C Smithson's birth record just listed as infant of Luther Smithson and mother is not mentioned. That was in 1913. Ruby May Smithson shows her name but not the parents. I rechecked, in Navarro Co in 1919. These records give you a timeframe of where they were as well as Luther's WW I Draft card in Purdon, Navarro Co in 1917-1918

Even with this information I still did not find the Wortham's in 1910 census in Navarro or Ellis Counties show up in Tarrant county in 1920. I found no connection to Bell county on the Wortham's.

Name: Ruby May Smithson
Date of Birth: 2 Jun 1919
Birth County: Navarro
Certificate Number: 28599
Roll Number: 1919_0012

If you are wanting to confirm her mother's maiden name your best option is to obtain copy of her brother's SS-5 which he completed listing his parents names with his mother's maiden name. This form will also give more information on where Alfred James Wortham was when he filed the application. It would also confirm that she was a Marsh as the California death index indicates.

Please send me a photocopy of the actual application for a Social Security card (Form SS-5--Social Security Number Record Third Party Request for Photocopy) filed by the person listed below.

I obtained this information from the Social Security Death Master file at, Inc. who obtained it from the Social Security Death Master file, originally compiled by the Social Security Administration.

My understanding is that the fee is $27, when the Social Security number is provided or $29 if the Social Security number is unknown or incorrect. Enclosed is a check or money order for $___________, made payable to the Social Security Administration.

Thank you for your assistance.

Birth: 21 May 1899
Death: Oct 1963
