You show date and location of death for Mary Elizabeth Dunn, have you obtained a copy of her death certificate? It should have the names and birth locations of her parents. And, if you can find DC for her bro, Henry Low Dunn, get his, too. Good to be able to compare and see if they have same info. Accuracy only as good as the knowledge of the informant, so nice when you can compare. TX began keeping vital records in 1903, so if Mary Ann died after 1903, get a copy of her DC, too.

Since Mary Ann got married to 2nd hus in TX, did Wiley die in TX? If so, I would check for probate, land, and guardianship records in Harrison Co, TX. Even though mother was living, if minor children were due an inheritance, the court should have appointed a guardian.
