The original message was from Susan. Katy/Katie was an Eason and Susan doesn't know who she married. I couldn't find her with a husband. One census showed she was married at age 20, so around 1900 or shortly before. Could have been in Kansas. Some of her siblings were adopted after they moved there from Williamson Co., IL. and she might have been also - see death record below which has a different father's name. However, an obit. for her sister Effie Eason in 1926 mentioned her sister Kate Tippy being in Dixon, IL.

So we know she was buried in the cemetery beside Dixon State Hospital. She was b. 23 Aug 1880 the dtr. of George and Rhoda Eason, Williamson Co. birth records. Since their is a big gap between 1880 and 1900 it has been hard to locate her. I tried 1900 as a Howard, just in case; tried spelling first name many ways, birth year, birth state, etc. No luck there.
Katy's name did not come up in the pre-1948 Dixon newspaper index so probably no obituary

Thanks for jumping on board. Maybe you can help figure this out.
