Is there anyone who can do a look-up for Butler Co. Cemeteries for a possible Elizabeth Henley, she died abt 1897 +/- a year.
Elizabeth was living in Poplar Bluff in 1891 when her daughter married William A. Silkwood. After that she is not found. By 1900, the last of her children are living in Lawrence Co., AR with their sister and her husband (Clabe and Martha Vanover). Elizabeth was widowed sometime in the 1880s, so no husband to take the kids.
Family has it that they became "orphaned" about 1897, give or take a year. This was based on stories where my Great Grandmother Della Henley stated she was about 11 when they went to live with her sister Martha. Della was born 1886, hence about 1897 when Elizabeth passed.
Any help much appreciated.
