I'm not sure why your grandfather is listed in the wrong county. I
went back to check and he is indeed listed in Tallapoosa Co. The
original source is:
State of Alabama. Index of Vital Records for Alabama: Deaths, 1908-1959.
Montgomery, AL, USA: State of Alabama Center for Health Statistics,
Record Services Division.
I notice that Tallapoosa and Elmore counties adjoin, and that
Tallassee is right on the county line, separated by the river from
East Tallassee in Tallapoosa Co. I wonder if the hospital's records
department is in East Tallassee. Or maybe the records for the two
counties were submitted together to the State Center, and the
transcriber made a mistake.
As for John's middle initial being wrong, that isn't too unusual.
I would bet there is a stray mark on the record right below the
rounded capital "A", and the transcriber mistook it for a "J".
I notice that I didn't have R-numbers for James and John, which
means I didn't connect them with your family. Thanks for pointing
that out, especially since I didn't have John's death information
in my database.
Happy to help
