The informant is a person who knew the deceased well enough to provide personal data for
the death certificate such as date of birth, names of parents or spouse, etc. Actually,
most of the information on a death certificate comes from the informant and the physician
only says what the cause of death was and gives the time of death.
I think there was a question too as to whether Hobart was Hobart or Hobert. His wife
obviously knew him as Hobart.
