Surnames: Gardner, Tipton, Lucas
My GGGrandparents, Samuel and Nancy (Tipton) Gardner moved from Centre County, PA to Fayette County, IA in 1855. A Year later Sam's brother William H and his wife Isabella (Lucas) Gardner came to Fayette County. William later made several moves. One was to Mills County Iowa. William Hs Wife, Isabella finally wound up in Omaha, NB living with Her son William J. The City directory lists most of the family including Isabella who the 1900 directory called "Widowed" and living with her son William J. She is shown to with him in the 1910 directory also and then nothing.

I found this obituary listing but I don't have access to the Omaha newspapers microfilms:

GARDNER, William H.; 12 Feb 1904 Omaha Bee morn p 8 @ Walnut Hill, Council Bluffs, IA

I found no listing for Isabella, or Belle or Bella or for Mrs.William Gardner in this obituary index.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll try to follow it up. The whole family was living together in Omaha in the early 1900s and just disappeared.
