The 1099-DIV I received only lists the dividend from the time it was transferred into my name although there were two other dividends paid between May 13, 2009 (date of death) and July 24, 2009 (when it was put into my name).

I'm guessing even though it wasn't reported on the 1099-DIV, I'm still responsible for the other 2 dividends received on 1 June 09 and 1 July 09?

You're guessing incorrectly. The estate, not you, is responsible for the dividends as long as the funds were not yet in your name.
