I am seeking information and/or documentation on the death date, death place, and burial place of Nancy Clower Myers (Miers) Wright. Nancy is "said" to have died in Prairie Lea, Cladwell Co., Texas. Nancy Clower was born about 1803 in Georgia. Following is the information I have to date:

Did Nancy die between census date in 1870 and Asa's probate case in 1873? According to what I have, Nancy was still alive.
