If you are looking at the death certificate it says she was born in 1850, not 1880. The 1900 census here, which appears to be her, has her birth about 1855

If this is the correct person, it has her as single, with several children, but her father is listed as Robert "Drinkins" - I wonder if that is her father in law, or if it is her husband's father?

Also, I would suggest you post a query on the Kershaw County board here
