My records indicate that Ella died in 1923. I have some old railway tickets indicating that she left Collins, Montana to go to Billings in January of 1916. There is another one indicating that she left shortly thereafter to travel to Kansas City, MO, and from there to Peru, IN. She's listed as the mother-in-law of the brakeman, E. R. Smith (daughter Lydia's husband). Apparently Harry Kelley and Mabel were also in Collins, Montana by 1920 because I have an old letter from someone in Idaho addressed to Harry, although I can't tell who the writer is. It's all about crops and grain and harvesting and the writer was after Harry to buy a piece of his property.
Ella is buried at the Pleasant Union Cemetery in Old Fort between her two husbands, so she most likely did die in Ohio as you indicate.
