Melinda Lanford Colbert

I am searching for the parents of Melinda Lanford, born about 1816 in South Carolina. In 1837, she married George W. Colbert (born 10/09/1809) of South Carolina. They lived in Fayette County, Alabama in 1850 census.....then moved westward to Clay/Chickasaw County, Mississippi. After his death around 1880, she moved to Texas, apparently to be near her son- G.W. Colbert.
Melinda passed away "on the evening of the 13th of June, at 4 p.m........ at the age of 74.....". I have a portion of the obit notice but do not have the newspaper name nor city (I believe in Bell County).
