Thank you so much for your research and time put into helping me! I really appreciate you taking the time- that's a lot of great information you found. One thing I am a little worried about is if the "William J. Downs" in the 1880 census with father "William A. Downs" isn't my G. G. Grandfather...and for some reason he is just hiding somewhere out there with Doretta...and I were to start following William J. Downs and his father as if they were my relatives, then everything from that point on would be false information...but then again, it sounds like everyone tends to think the death certificate to William is wrong and his mother isn't Doretta. I have contacted the Waco library and they also did some research for me and there is no record of William and Doretta in the cemetery or anywhere at all...and the only records they sent back to me were of William A. and Elizabeth. So, would you say with the given information that it is same to say that the Death certificate is wrong and that William J. Downs in the 1880 census is the right guy? Again, thank you so much for your help!
