I found a Death Date on an Army record dated 1911. Death date Apr 12 1904 KS. When I find the Death Certificate I hope to learn who his parents are and where the lines go from there.

Dear Ms. Teichrieb,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Before 1874 no births were recorded at the county or state level in Tennessee, so you need to look at other sources for birth documentation (ex. death/cemetery records; newspapers; family bibles/church records, etc). The Claiborne County Historical and Genealogical Society may be a good resource on local materials.
Since you have located a death date, are you able to locate the individual you are seeking in this Kansas Deaths and Burials database: https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1674844? The information recorded varies, but could provide additional information regarding birth.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
