The same family tree gives Hannah Isbell Mershon's death as 1892, source not stated.

The 1860 census gives her birth as 1808 while the 1870 census indicates her birth as 1803.

It is possible she was buried in one of the many unmarked or unreadable graves in the Isbell family cemetery in Jackson County or in one of the other cemeteries nearby where various family members were buried.
However, she is most likely buried in the small Mershon cemetery where her son George was buried 10 years later. Her grave is probably the slightly older grave marked with a rock next to his. An older unmarked grave next to her is most likely her husband.
