Thanks so much for the offer to check the Abeline paper, and for looking into the death records.

I've done pretty extensive research on the family, but it's been difficult to get more information about Rebecca, her husband and children. I actually thought that she died between 1900-1910, because she disappeared and it looked like her husband had a couple more wives after her. So I was really excited when I saw that she died in 1936. Now if I can just track her down in the 1910 & 1920 census!

So I'm guessing Rebecca and W. E. Williams may have gotten a divorce. OR my research has been off base!! :) If you're curious, here's a link to Rebecca in my family tree so that you can see more... What I'm hoping for from an obituary is to get some additional clues about her children - where they were living and who they married. I got some clues from her husband Wesley Edward Williams when he died in 1945 in Phoenix, AZ.
