I am looking for Bettie Litchford b abt 1851, married Ira McCown on oct 25, 1877 in Sevier Co., AR. She was his 1st wife. What I am looking for is her death date, so I can pinpoint when he married my gggrandmother Laura Mouser. I know she had 4 children and the last one was born in 1883.And then on the 1900 census(Polk Co.,)it has Ira already married to Laura and list Ira'a and Bettie's children and also list Ira's and Larua's child my grandmother(Ada Marie McCown Parker)born in 1889. So somewhere between 1883 and 1889 something happened to Bettie (died, divoriced, ect) and he married Laura. I can not find any information on Ira and Laura marriage anywhere in AR.Help if you can.
