I use Familysearch a lot for Texas death records.

I was doing some work on a neglected leg of my Burris bunch - and found a death record for my second cousin, once removed.
Effie Estelle Rankin was the daughter of William Wilson Rankin and Mary Jane Jones.

She was an old maid schoolteacher, and died at the age of 74, eight days after her birthday in 1962 in Collingsworth County, TX.

When I look at death certificates for someone that old, I expect to see death by heart attack, cancer or stroke.

Not because the car you were riding in pulled out in front of a train, and death was caused by a fractured skull and broken neck.
I haven't been able to find a newspaper article to find out if she was driving or was a passenger.
