Look for probate or land records for 1871 and later. If the land did not leave the family for a number of years, it might not be recorded for a good many years after she died in 1871. But, if her children shared equally in her estate, they will all be named, and they all will have to sign off on the sale of the land. Land records can "build" family trees, sometimes. I've found them selling off their shares to each other. Married women usually were listed, plus their husbands, too. If a married daughter had died, her one share would divided among her children.
