Need the death record of Wade Hampton Cunningham b 1869. He was born in Prentiss County, Mississippi and is listed there in the 1880 census. His Uncle by the same name died there in 1915. I have done searches thru Ancestry with no results.

This is one I would like to get closure on. The family in MS has sent me all remaining records, but his death is not there. She stated that no living males who still live in Prentiss that are kin.

Hope someone can help.

Found nothing on Wade's death, but this might lead to a clue...

I found this 1880 census record which appears to be for the family.

"United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M4P9-DVR : accessed 11 June 2016), A Cuningham, Beat 4, Prentiss, Mississippi, United States; citing enumeration district ED 173, sheet 244D, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 0663; FHL microfilm 1,254,663.

Wade's older brother William is listed and his younger siblings are listed, but Wade at age 11/12 is not.  Was he with relatives?  Or working on a local farm as a laborer?  Are the older children together?

There is also a J. P. Cunningham right next door with wife Sarah.  This might be John Pinar.  The birth year seems to align.
