Wayne thank you so much for the time and effort, however, this isn't my grandfather.  He definitely died in 1951, Dallas Texas.  His birth date is a little in question as being either 1887, 1888.  I know the death certificate you refer to but my grandfather isn't this man.  Thank you so much though.

I believe the DK stands for Don't Know, as his mother is listed also as DK

1951 Death Cert says birth is April 13, 1887 but parents are DK= don't know.
