Today in Family History - 15 May

My 3rd great-grandmother Mary Dudley Williams (Baldwin line) died on this day in 1867 in Muscogee County, Georgia [1, 2]. She was buried at Linwood Cemetery in Columbus, Muscogee, Georgia [1].

Note: Mary's grave marker says her date of death was 13 May 1857. The Bible record date of 15 May 1867 has been chosen as authoritative, especially given that she was married in late 1857 and all of her children were born after this date.
