Wife of Thomas McKinney. Daughter of Mr. McBride. Died of liver and stomach cancer, which apparently had spread from the breast. She's buried in Grandin, Missouri.
This info is from her death certificate.

Thomas was listed as divorced? But Martha was dead, so I assume the census was supposed to say widowed.

1910 census Ripley county
Thomas Mckinney Head M 54 Missouri
Laura Mckinney Wife F 55 Missouri
Golden Mckinney Daughter-in-law F 23 Missouri
Bennett Mckinney Son M 16 Missouri
Artie Mckinney Son M 14 Missouri
Marie Mckinney Granddaughter F 4 Missouri

Thomas has married Laura. You can see Bennett and Artie in 1900 census and now in 1910, so it's the same family.

I haven't yet found Thomas and Laura on the 1920 census. They had both passed by 1930. Laura died in Cape Girardeau.

Info from Patsy Gadberry:
Laura was first married to Andrew Theodore Johns, who was also born in Texas County, Missouri. He was living on the 1880 census, but evidently deceased by the 1900 one, as Laura was noted to be widowed. He and Laura had at least 4 daughters, Lillie V, Lizzie, Jane, and Golden Alice Johns.
