Did the Widow Remarry?

Even if no one mentions it, even if people insist it did not happen, consider the fact that a widow married again after her husband's death. A marriage, and consequential change in last name, could be the reason why you are unable to find her after her husband's death.

  1. I know! Very frustrating. I'm still looking for my great-great-grandmother. Family stories indicate she married someone by the name of Wallace in Texas, but have been unable to locate her, or where she is buried....though the date of her death has been handed down through the years. She apparently only lived a few years after she re-married. Sure wish we could locate her.
