Surnames: Bates, Estrabrooks

If you know the town or city where Darrell BATES died in the 1980's, you should be able to write a letter to that Town Clerk or City Clerk. Each town has different rules for obtaining certificates, but at the least you should be able to get the information from the certificate.

Also, out of curiousity, I put his name into a search at and found a man with that name born in 1930. If it is your Darrell, he is listed with his grandparents in the 1940 census in Linneus, ME. (See below.)

I didn't see any mention of him in another record there. You didn't mention the name of his father, so I couldn't tell if the 1940 census had the father's name. If you wanted to mention a few more details, some of us could try to find more information for you.

.. Again out of curiousity, I put his name into a search, and found his obituary had been posted on a message board. This shows the family in 1940 is his. And it says he died unexpectedly at Age 51. Possibly "heart disease" ran in the family.
