Jennie's DC shows she was buried in the Myrtle Cemetery, plus names of her parents. On the 1930 census she is living next door to Lydia Garth, 64, and on the same page is a Sam and Blanch Garth. Blanche died 1933, so maybe Jennie married Sam???? Sam Garth is the informant on Jennie's DC. Sam didn't die until 1960.

On the Find a Grave site, searching through burials for Myrtle Cemetery I found death date for Blanche. She and Sam are on a double headstone. Didn't find Jennie or William, but not everyone is listed for some cemeteries on that site.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
