Are you sure about her maiden name? Frank Shoemaker was her first husband. Renard or Renerd?

Not 100% sure of last name. Was following some other family trees who had made the connection. Trying to dig around myself because its a dead end with her and her husband Joseph E Dougan.

And yes i know Rosebud is in a different county (i have been there), but she homesteaded to Maxwell and is buried there.

Her daughter Mary Ella Dougan (obit below) is my 2nd great grandmother
