Yes, you should order the death certificate -- otherwise you may be misisng
some vital information.  As for the SSDI, any death that happened before
1962 may not be in the index.  Furthermore, given her age, she was not
likely to be drawing Social Security when she died.

Yours aye,

Thank you all for your help. Yes, this is the correct Ruth. Her middle
initial should not be 'C', but anyway, it is her. First of all, I'm not
sure why she is still not showing up in the SSDI. More importantly, if I
were to order a copy of the death certificate from the Tennessee Archives,
I am still wondering if it would contain her mother's maiden name. 

Does anyone have any idea on that? 

Thank you all again for finding her on the Tennessee website,

There is a Ruth C. Biggs who died on 5 January 1954 in Davidson County. 
The file number is 00250.  I found this by going to the site recommended by
Tina Sansone (http://register.shelby.tn.us/) and doing a search for any
Ruth who died on 5 January 1954.  I suspect that this is the Ruth Agnes
Cloud you are looking for and that she married a Biggs later in life.  Of
course, you need to prove this by finding the marriage record or other
supporting information.

Yours aye,
