David & Eliza Odell, Sullivan Co,TN-Saline Co,MO

David and Eliza Odell went from TN to Saline Co., MO in Dec. 1869. David apparently died in early 1872 as Eliza sent a Power of Attorney in April 1872 to an attorney in Sullivan Co., TN, referring to herself as the widow of David, asking that the attorney collect money that was owed to her. David is believed to be the son of Abraham & Mary (Castleman) Odell but I have no proof. On the 1880 Federal census Eliza was living with her son Alfred T. Odell in Marshall. I could not find her on the 1900 census (as she was born in 1806 it's unlikely she was still alive). Alfred was in Kansas City in 1900. Does anyone have any information about David & Eliza? I am especially interested in learning Eliza's maiden name and the names of her parents. This information might be on a death record if Missouri kept such records before 1900. Very little information is in Sullivan Co., TN, as all records except deeds were destroyed in 1863.
