    • Burial given in death record as West Union, while her obituary states "the West Union cemetery." Customarily, this would indicate the IOOF Cemetery at Blockhouse Hill, although some of her family is buried at the Masonic Cemetery at Crystal Lake near West Union. Readings of both cemeteries have failed to locate a grave marker for her.
