This is all we have to go on:

From the Columbus Enquirer on Sept 13, 1913:
Mrs. Mary E. Lisle Died Yesterday
Funeral and Internment This Morning at Salem, Alabama

Mrs. Mary E. Lisle, 88 years old, died yesterday morning at 10 o'clock at her home at number 10 Twenty-ninth Street. She had been in feeble and steadily declining health for several months preceding her death and while the end was not unexpected it came as a distinct shock and grief to her many warm friends in Columbus and elsewhere. Mrs. Lisle is survived by five sons of her immediate family, J. J. Lisle and J. H. Lisle of Opelika, Ala, J. P. Lisle of Thomas County, W. N. Lisle and J. D. Lisle of Columbus. She was a faithful and consistent member of the Primitive Baptist Church lately having been connected with the church of that faith in Gerard.
The body will be shipped this morning on the 6 o'clock Central of Georgia train to Salem, Ala., where the funeral and interment will be held.

We have searched available cemetery records in the area but have not located Grandmother Mary. Would appreciate any help you can give.

Thank you
Ellen Mayo
