Monday Madness: Death of Patrick Cummings (1863-1929)

The death of my wife's grandfather, St. Patrick Merlin CUMMINGS, is a bit of a mystery that has been driving me mad lately.  I have his date of death as January 7, 1929 in Sedgwick, Lawrence County, Arkansas, but have been unable to verify this record.
Recently, I submitted a request through the Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK) website, hoping that someone could find a record that would straighten out the mess.  Unfortunately, the response came back that the name Patrick CUMMINGS does not appear on the index of death certificates in Arkansas.  There is no one named CUMMINGS listed from Lawrence County.

The hunt goes on....
