01 Jun 1900 Census for Glasco City, Solomon Township, Cloud County, Kansas, USA

Beulah L. Smith       Daughter [My grandmother] Age 16
Helen A. Smith       Daughter Age 8
Bernice C. Smith       Daughter Age 1
Eliza Bennett              Mother-in-Law & Widowed Age 66

Ida Mae Wright married John W. Smith. Eliza, who was living with them, had to have married a third time to a Bennett.
In Wyuka Cemetery in Lincoln, NE, John W. Smith and Ida M have 3 plots, but only 2 burials (theirs). I wonder if one plot was intended for Eliza, but she is not buried there; it's an empty plot.
Therefore, I wonder if she was returned to be buried by her first husband William H. Wright. I don't know where William H. Wright is buried, but I assume Glasco, Cloud County, Kansas.

WILLIAM H. WRIGHT, born about 1843-1846 in Ohio, died 10 Sep 1887 in Cloud County, Kansas
ELIZA ANN STOUT, born Mar 1847 in Township 19 N R 1 E, Dewitt County, Illinois, died Aft. 1910 probably in Lincoln, Nebraska

Married:
WILLIAM H WRIGHT on 31 Aug 1865, in Clinton, DeWitt County, Illinois
Then Eliza married Jacob Cossel, 19 Dec 1887, in Solomon, Cloud County, Kansas. He died, 14 Jun 1907, Glasco, Cloud County, Kansas.
Then a Mr. Bennett, after 1907, but by 1910, she was widowed and living with her daughter Ida May Smith (nee Wright.)
By 1920, she is not living with her son-in-law and daughter.
