Frankie died at St. Luke's hospital, in St. Louis, MO, but was buried in Fredericktown, where she was living in 1927, a widow.
She married c1883, as his 2nd wife, to James E. Davis, & they were the parents of 3 children, Catherine, Henry Davis & Sarah. James was a Capt. in the 68th Regiment of the MO State Militia, Co. (G) and a Lieutenant in the 47th MO Infantry, Co. (G), during the Civil War, same Reg't & Company as her oldest brother, John Levi Shearrer.
I had Frankie in another cemetery, but believe she was more likely buried near her husband. Dwc Her d.cert. just says Fredericktown, MO.
