Matilda Edwards was the d/o Jacob Frazier and Abigail Adkins Edwards. After the death of her older sister, Melissa, 'Til', as she was called, married Melissa's husband Reuben Perkins on 12-7-1865 in Boone Co., MO. and raised their 2 children, Robert and Susan, along with the 9 children they had together. She was well thought of and loved by family members. I don't know where she is buried. I wish I would have ask Grandma Bryson who was her grand niece but, although we talked about her, I never ask or neglected to record her death date and place of burial. Although there is no record of her grave, she may be at rest in Shawnee, Avoca or Wanette, OK.

Aunt Til had brothers named 'Patten' and William. And sisters, Mary Edna, Marinda and Melissa,
Her children were named William Payton, Anna L. Green Berry, Walter Portman, Emette, James M. Lilly May, Freddie M. and Lawson Alger.
