I am searching for information about my about my grandfather, Irvin E. Tilton, born 3 Feb 1862 in Olive, Noble Co., Ohio and died 21 Feb 1965 in De Ridder, Beauregard Parish, Louisiana. He married Rosa Flanders on 4 Jun 1890 in Kansas City, Wyandotte Co., Kansas. She was born 8 Sep 1861 in Shelbyville, Shelby Co., Illinois and died 6 Dec 1955 in De Ridder, Beauregard Parish, Louisiana. Their children were:
1) Albert George Tilton, born 7 Sep 1895 in Nardin, Kay Co., Oklahoma and died 14 Dec 1980 in San Joaquin, San Joaquin Co., California. He married Mabel I. Clark on 8 Feb 1921 in Okmulgee, Okmulgee Co., Oklahoma.
2) Helen B. Tilton, born 9 Jun 1897 in Renfrow, Kay Co., Oklahoma and died 24 Aug 1988 in Pitkin, Vernon Co., Louisiana. She married Thomas "Tom" Whitford.
3) Richard Thaddeus Tilton, born 5 Feb 1900 in Renfrow, Kay Co., Oklahoma and died 15 Feb 1967 in De Ridder, Beauregard Co., Louisiana. He married Mertie Sue Stracener.
Irvin E. Tilton lived to 103 years old. I'm interested in any information you can find about him while he was in Louisiana.
Also, Richard Thaddeus Tilton and four of his ten children all died on 15 Feb 1967 in Deridder, Beauregard Co., Louisiana. Their names were:
1) Timothy Christopher Tilton b. 18 Mar 1962, d. 25 Feb 1967 in Vernon Parish, Louisiana
2) William Lindley Tilton b. 7 Feb 1963, d. 25 Feb 1967 in Vernon Parish, Louisiana
3) David Wayne Tilton b. 4 Oct 1964, d. 25 Feb 1967 in Vernon Parish, Louisiana
4) Karen Renee Tilton b. 9 Aug 1966, d. 25 Feb 1967 in Vernon Parish, Louisiana
I am curious as to the cause of all of their deaths on the same day. Any and all information would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you.
