Thanks for posting this information. Is Drucilla the first name for Sarah Jane Pelfrey or could it be Priscilla which is probably what her mother's is instead of the nickname Pricey?

Do I need to change my family tree from George W. Todd to George Vance Todd? I saw where someone had it George Valentine Todd.

Is Robert Ira Smith related to the George W. Smith who married Pricey's sister Sarah E. Pelfrey?

Here are some of the things I have found out about this family:

Marriage Of Pricey Elizabeth Pelfrey
Name:       Pricy Elizabeth Pelfrey       
Marriage Date:       17 Nov 1878       
Marriage County:       Dallas        
Spouse Name:       George W Todd       
       I can view the original record of marriage and it clearly reads George W. Todd. They were married "at the residence of Zerilda Wilson in Jasper Township."

Home of Zerilda Wilson in 1880 Census:       Jasper, Dallas, Missouri       

Zerilda Wilson       36        
Francis Wilson       15        Male
Manerva Wilson       11        
Matilda Wilson       6        
Rily Helderbrand       25        
Mary Helderbrand       17        Married Dau. of Zerilda
Dora Helderbrand       2        
Melda Helderbrand       1        

Marriage of Sarah Jane Pelfrey and Hiram A. Wilson of Cloverdale "at
the residence of P. E. Todd."
Name:       Sarah J Pelfer       
Marriage Date:       221903       
Marriage Location:       Dallas, Missouri        
Marriage County:       Dallas        
Spouse Name:       Hiram A Wilson       

Home in 1910:       Lincoln, Dallas, Missouri
Lily was still going by Pelfrey at age 13. I don't find a marriage license for
Robert Ira Smith and Lillie Frances ______ in the MO records.       

Hiram Wilson       32        
Sarah Wilson       35        
Mary Wilson       6        
William Wilson       4        
George Wilson       2        
Lily Pelfrey       13        
Sarah says that she was born in AR and Lily says that her mother was born
in AR. This would put Pricey Elizabeth in AR in 1875. Her family minus Father Nathan Pelfrey and oldest sister Louisa Jane Pelfrey were in 1870: Madison, Cedar, Missouri. They must have went to AR for a while.

Home in 1870: Madison, Cedar, Missouri
Nathan has apparently died. before 1870. Notice
that Pricey is only listed as Elizabeth here.

Elisabeth Pelfry 51
Mary A Pelfry 23
Wm Pelfry 19
Elisabeth Pelfry 17
Sarah Pelfry 14
Jackson Pelfry 11
Susan F Pelfry 10
James W Pelfry 5

This marriage record appears to be the sister of Pricey Elizabeth:
Name:       Miss. Sarah E Pelfrey       
Marriage Date:       20 Feb 1874       
Marriage County:       Dallas        
Spouse Name:       Mr. Geo W Smith       

Home in 1930:       Buffalo, Dallas, Missouri       
Household Members:       Name       Age

Elmer C Smith       14        
William C Smith       12        
Helois G Smith       10
