Re: Desperately seeking Obituary look-up!

In Reply to: Desperately seeking Obituary look-up! by Greg Smith of 375

Can check the Abilene papers later today for an obit - but you should realize they didn't really have obits back in the day-

Per the LDS Pilot Search - her death certificate lists her parents as Riley Keeland and mother as Jane Marshall - her spouse was Wm E Williams who died prior to 1936 since she was listed as a widow - b May 21, 1875 Carrol Co., AR informant was F.B. Williams Big Springs, TX

Then if you put in Riley Keeland you get two other results:

William Elbert Keeland b 11 Apr 1872 Carrol Co., AR d 19 Apr 1941 Dallas, Dallas Co - informant: Mrs. Louise Keeland [who if you investigate further would be Louise Gray- they have a child listed also] burial Five Mile Cemetery, Dallas father was listed as Wm Riley

Sarah Shell b 3 Jul 1872 AR d 22 Jon 1935 Cooke Co. - spouse was Jessie Shell who died prior to 1935 as she is listed as widow- father Riley Keeland mother Eliza Marshell burial Valley View Cemetery - informant was G.D. Shell

Hope it helps some
Betty
