Appears to say Wife of H. M. or W.M Leishear,
Aged 24 years,9 days
Since, have discovered an obituary for a William M, in 1910 son of the late William M & Mary Leishear, confirming my original note. Also another who is likely his brother d 1905.
I believe her husband remarried to an Elizabeth V [''Grumwell'' 1860 census] and had 2 girls Mary A. in '62 & possibly a Maud in 1886. See 1900 Olney Md. spelled Lushear. See a possible pension record for a William dated Sept 11, 1899, Co. A, 1st Battalion D.C. Infantry ? doesn't list death or middle initial, so I assume he died between 1900 census and 1910 obituary listing ''son of late William M & Mary''.
