I am searching for Malissa C. Gaither born @1878/1879.I believe she is child of Cordillia Lodusky "Doc" Goodman Gaither b. @1858 and died Sep 25, 1879.Cordillia was married to William B. Gaither.
I am not certain where Cordellia is buried, possibly in Goodloe Cemetery in Quitman, Cleburne/Van Buren Co., AR.I know other members of her family is buried there.Her Grandma, Mary Tucker Moore (b. @1797 NC died June 20, 1858 Quitman, Van Buren Co., AR).Mary Moore was buried in the area that used to be fenced with the old cast iron fence that George Moore had put around his family and the Rollow family maintained for many years.The Cemetery grounds keeper gave the fence to a friend of his.I am not sure if the headstones are still standing since the fence no longer protects the area from power mowers that are so rough on headstones.
I found the date of death for Cordellia Gaither on the 1880 Mortality Schedule.I believe that Cordellia Goodman and William Gaither were probably married by W. G. Ward, J. P. who lived nearby (and performed the marriage of my own Gr. Grandma, Cassandra Minerva Jane Enterprise Goodman and William David Fowler Sep 1, 1878).I do not show a marriage date for William B. Gaither & Cordellia Lodusky Goodman.
Any help on this Malissa C. Gaither b. @1878/1879 AR would certainly be appreciated.
I believe I used to show the marriage date and the parents of William B. Gaither but I think my FTM is dropping information for some reason?
