Louisa and Joel were grandparents to my mother, Sallie Ann Reynolds. They married each other twice. Their first marriage was 16 Aug 1878, remarried 18 Oct 1911, both in Barren County, Kentucky. The 1910 census list Louisa Carver, divorced. My mother, 6 months with her parent's Ida P and Will Reynolds living with Louisa, my great grandmother. Ida was Louisa and Joel's daughter. As of yet, I could not find Joel on the 1910 census. He and Louisa are listed married on the 1920 census, Glasgow, Barren County, KY.

Louisa was the only one of her family that remained in Glasgow. Her parents and sibling moved first to Missouri and then settled in Arkansas, around Harriburg, Poinsett County Arkansas where several are buried in or near that location, possibly some in nearby counties near Poinsett. Cannot find where her parents are buried. Some list on ancestry they died abt 1911 in Poinsett County, Arkansas but have no documentation.

The two unmarked slab gravestones in the Kilgore family plot are quite possibly Louisa and husband, Joel Y Carver's grave locations...More information given on how these graves were acquired; CLICK below: Joel Yancy Carver and read his bio.

My great grandmother. My mother, Sallie Ann Reynolds Hare's grandmother. Mom spoke of her and of her grandmother's love for her. Mom dearly loved her. I think Mom would want others to know.
