Thank you for taking the time to reply. I posted my original question about 2 years ago. In that time, I've found some answers, but now have different questions!

The Louriana you mentioned is my Louise's mother. (Actually, I've seen my girl's name listed as either Louise, Luranny, Lurana, Lorena, and Lourenia!)

Apparently my girl remarried in 1869 to John H. Burk. The Burk family is listed in the 1870 census for Dalton. But in the 1880 census, they are listed as the Burns family in Carroll County, Arkansas.

I loose the trail from 1880 until 1892. Louise's son Lee Cryer gets married in Muskogee, Indian Territory.'s compilation of directories to replace the 1890 census has a John H. Burk living back in Atlanta, but no mention of a wife. In the 1900 census John is a widower living with his sister's family. And he's not listed in the 1910 census.

Do you know if there are any John Burk's listed in Poplar cemetery? Or even possibly Louriana Burk? If she's not there, she could be buried anywhere from Indian Territory to Georgia (a lot of territory and a lot of cemeteries that are not online....)
