This is what I have:

Phinetta Brown Wooten was born about 1800. She died on 14 Jul 1878 in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. She was buried in Hasley Cemetery, West Monroe, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana.

Page 3, Column 3 Death

We are called upon to record the death of two estimable ladies of this city and parish. Mrs.
Deborah c. Filhiol, wife of Mr. H. Filhiol, of this city, expired on the 8th, after a long and most painful
illness caused by cancer of the stomach. Mrs. Filhiol had endeared herself, by her excellent qualities of head and heart, to a large circle of friends of both sexes, by whom, as will as by the entire community, her death is greatly deplored.

On the 14th, Mrs. Phinetta B. Hasley died at her residence near Trenton, in the 78th year of her age, following her late husband, David Hasley, after the lapse of only three or four years. Mrs. Hasley was conspicuous for domestic virtues and for her liberality to the Baptist church, of which she was a member. The Baptist church and parsonage at Trenton and the beautiful house of worship in this city owned by the same denomination are monuments of her munificence and will long perpetuate her memory. The blank in the memorial tablet in the latter building to Mrs. Hasley may now be filled.

The will of Mrs. Hasley has been probated. Two thousand dollars is bequeathed to a son of Dr. White; $2000 to a son of Major McGuire; and the remainder of the property is to be sold, and the interest on the proceeds is to go one-half, each, to the Baptist church at Trenton and the Baptist church at Clinton, Miss. The will was made before Recorder Grady in 1874.

Phinetta married (1) Lemuel Newman son of Samuel A. Newman and Mary Anne Lovett on 4 Nov 1825. Lemuel was born on 18/19 Jan 1799 in Warren County, Georgia. He died on 23/25 May 1851 in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. He was buried in Hasley Cemetery, West Monroe, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana.

Tombstone inscription (Hasley Cemetery) lists birthdate as 19 Jan 1799 and death date as 23 May 1851.

Phinetta married (2) David Hasley on 12 Nov 1853 in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana. David was born on 15 Jan 1810. He died on 9 Jan 1873 in Trenton, DeSoto Parish, Louisiana. He was buried in Hasley Cemetery, West Monroe, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana.
