This bottom one his dad Would be T.J Hooper,  I don't know where they got Mary from but Sophia Wilson was mother you thank I should go with this?, Thanks for helping

P.s his brother -in - law would be Emerald L Rickerson looks like it but wrong names Emerald was married to his sister Isabella Hooper b. 1870
If his brother in law was the Informant for the death cert. he may not have known/remembered ___ Wilson's first name. And you don't call your wife who was too upset to do this because her brother just died, ask her to help fill in the blanks!   I think I would just go with it, and make a note, that the mother's first name is incorrect.

Ok Chris I thank I got all the information I need on the profile,  please double check ,Thanks

I   went back and looked at the image, and EL Rickerson is the actual spelling of the informant, so I made a little change in your note.  It looks fine with your explanation.  I think it's all set.

Thank you Chris Hoyt
