Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 12, 1857
Knox County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Oct. 29, 1919
Knox County
Kentucky, USA

Daughter of James Berry Elliott and Sarah Hammons.
First marriage December 13, 1873, Knox County, Kentucky to Henry Lankford Warfield, son of Henry T Warfield and America Mahala Terrell.

America's 2nd marriage was July 29, 1882 in Knox County, KY to Martin Van Newman. Parents of Lillie Newman born 1886, married Jan 02, 1902 at age 16 to Thomas Henry Centers, age 21, son of John Jackson Centers and Lydia Narcissus Hart.
Martin Van Newman's first marriage was June 10, 1879, Knox County Kentucky to Martha Hubbs, daughter of Stephen JR Hubbs and Francis Cox.

3rd marriage and 2nd Wife of Perry Steele, son of William Steele and Rebecca Dowis. Married January 13, 1895, the home of the bride, Corn Creek, Woodbine, Whitley County Kentucky.

NOTE; James Berry Elliott and Sarah Hammons only had one daughter named America.
America has 2 headstones. This one in Lee Cemetery and a newer one in Warfield Terrell Cemetery, listing her name as America Warfield, dates March 31, 1857 and November 11, 1919.
This is the older headstone with America's last married name of Steele. The Warfield headstone is much newer, likely added by a family member that understood America was buried next to her first husband Henry Lankford Warfield and was not aware that she had remarried twice after Henry's death.
Either sets of dates may be correct. She may be buried in either of these graves or not buried in either one of them.
