They lived in Tennessee Valley and had five children: Margaret (Anderson), Robert Isaiah, Mary Josephine(Morris & Williams), Sarah Emily, and Wilson Franklin.
Family tradition is she died about 1864 and was buried in Tennessee Valley. Her grave was moved to Resthaven Cemetery when the Belton Dam was built and is unmarked.
