Thanks, Linda. I had finally figured this out According to Paula Jones, Elizabeth Caroline Ivey married a William H. Coltharp after her first husband, John Tindall, was killed in the Civil War. The marriage record, dated 05 May 1867, is in Franklin Co. AR. Wm. H's age is given as 77, Elizabeth Tindall's as 37.A record of the sale of George Ivey's land upon his death says that her name was E.C. Colthorp or Calthorp. The record was dated April 2, 1875.
It appears she married William H. Coltharp and that his absence in the 1870 census confirms the 1868 death date for him which came from MS researchers of the family--no source given. 1870, Clarksville, Johnson Co.
