Is There Yet Another Marriage?

My ancestor's second wife disappeared after his death in the 1880s. Apparently dropped off the face of the earth. Turns out, she married after my ancestor died, thus changing her last name. If a woman "disappears," remember that she could be right where she always was, just living with a new husband and a new last name.
