I am trying to find death date and place for my husband's gr grandmother Eliza or Elizabeth FLANERY SNAPP MCNEELY. She was married to Logan Snapp, and later divorced. She married Frank Lee MCNEELY (I am guessing about 1908/09) and had a son Robert McNeely that was born in Rogersville, Tennessee 1/26 1910. In 1947, Eliza lived in Redlands, California, but I have been unable to locate a death date for her there. I am thinking that she went "home" to Hawkins Co, TN in her old age, and maybe died there. If anyone has info on her marriage to Frank McNeely or her DEATH date/place, I would appreciate hearing from you.
