Death Certificate- William H. Herrin

Certificate of death for William Herrin

William H. Herrin died 31 January 1928, though his grave marker lists his death as 27 January 1927.  According to the death certificate, William was ill for 3 to 4 days with bronchitis, under the care of  Dr.  Mason of Lumberton, Mississippi.  The record also shows that William was a farmer and was of the age of 77 at the time of his death, which is incorrect, if he was born in 1857.  It also states the parents of William were Green Herrin and Cynthia Lott.  Informant was William's son, Albert Herrin.


  1. I always love it when I find a death certificate or other important document to connect with a family member. I think they are important to our research and genealogy.
