Maggie/Magnolia Prater

Hello Hoosiers!!

Be on the look out for a Maggie/Magnolia Prater

I am researching my disappearing gg-grandmother. She disappeared after 1920 census in Dupont,Jennings Co, Indiana.
Her name on census': it's either Maggie or Margaret; but on family's obits/son's prison record/other son James death record her name is Magnolia (Staley) Prater b: 1872 Virginia

According to 1930 Federal census she didn't move with spouse: John W Prater & her children James, Charles, Lottie/Charlotte, Perry, Ballard to Kokomo,Howard Co,Indiana.

On John W Prater's death record in 1947 he was widowed; and on her son Perry's prison record in 1939 she was dead.
So I figure she died between 1920-1928;When John moved to Kokomo,Indiana.
She may have been consumptive according to prison record she was.
