Anna Elrod 3rd wife of David Elrod, Latrobe Pa.

I am trying to find the burial place of Nancy Ann Jones, Murray, Mintonye, Elrod b. 1869 and died unknown after 1949. Known to family members as Aunt Anna or Annie.

Nancy Ann Jones married Edward Murray possibly Appanoose Co. Iowa in 1885-86, she had three children with Edward Murray, Mary Tressie b. 1887, Edward Fielden b. 1894 and William F. b. 1898. The daughter is believed to have died after 1900 and before 1910. She divorced Edward Murray and then married William Nelson Mintonye in Polk Co. Iowa. They were still together in 1920, but apparently divorced before 1930. She then married a David Elrod according to family information and was living with extended family in 1949.

A David Elrod b. 1865 Pa. and died in 1943 Polk Co. Iowa is a likely candidate for the third marriage. He left Latrobe Pa. according to family message boards and went to Prairie City Iowa, he had been married three times, his first two wives were named but not the third. He had relatives living in Prairie City, Jasper Co. Iowa. According to the message boards a nephew David Morton Elrod b. abt 1931 was his nephew and he willed all his records to this nephew. According to message boards they never said where he was buried, whether Iowa or Pennsylvania.


In 1930 David Elrod is living in Latrobe, Westmoreland Co. Pa with wife Anna who was born in Iowa, parentís b. Illinois, which is correct for Nancy Ann Jones and that she was first married at age 17 which would be 1886 marriage date for her first marriage.

Edward Fielden Murray lived in Des Moines, Polk Co. Iowa and married a Mabel Surface, this information from the 1925 Iowa State Census. Edward F. Murray died in 1967 in Ottumwa, Wapello Co. Iowa. Wapello is near Appanoose Co. where Nancy Ann was born in 1869 and where she was living with relatives in 1949.

I would truly like to find her final resting place. And hopefully make contact with Murray family members. She is the one daughter of Fielding Jones and Lucy Miller I have not found yet.

Any information or direction is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Nancy M. Boyd
