Jan. 24, 1912
Barry Co., MO
Research Note: Her death certificate reads that she was buried in Munsey Cemetery. Her name was Elizabeth S. (Huff) Phillips. Her father was given as William Huff born Poke Co., TN - T. A. Stapp of Seligman, MO, gave the information. Elizabeth Smyth Huff married Andrew Jackson Phillips in 1858 in TN. Darla's Note: Information I had came from Betty Chigbrow: Elizabeth's husband was Andrew Jackson Phillips born Nov. 16, 1840 and died April 6, 1929 in Berryville, AR, buried in the Corinth Cemetery. They were married June 8, 1858 in Benton, Polk Co., TN. Also, these are newspaper items of Elizabeth's death. - Butler Hollow News - Mrs. A. J. Phillips died Wednesday Jan. 24 and was laid to rest Jan. 25 at Corinth Cemetery. She leaves a husband, one son and four daughters and a host of relatives and friends to mourn her death. The bereaved ones have the sympathy of our community. - February 8, 1912, Thursday, Cassville Republican - Muncey News: Mrs. Andy Phillips died the 24 and was buried the 25 in the Huff Cemetery. The bereaved family have our sympathy. - Since her stone is in Corinth and since Andrew was buried at Corinth and the family would have brought him from Berryville, it is likely that Elizabeth is buried in Corinth, too, and not Munsey as the death certificate reports. Since Corinth was once called the Huff Cemetery and her maiden name was Huff she probably was buried near family. Children were: Leonard Phillips (died as young child), Samuel Phillips (died as young child), Nancy Jane Phillips (Mrs. "Eck" Fielding Alexander Kiper), Amanda Phillips (died as young child), Matilda Tee Phillips (Mrs. William Henry Lawrence, both are buried at Corinth), John Andrew Phillips, Judith Juda Elizabeth Phillips (Mrs. James "Henry" Brewer, parent of Ada Brewer who married Charles Tucker), Grace Ann Phillips (Mrs. Thomas Stapp).

Hefley, born in Flat Creek Twp., Barry Co., and her mother was Marguerite Babb, born in TN. James Smalley was given as her husband. - Cassville Democrat, Nov. 12, 1927 - Another one of Barry county's homes have been entered and saddened by the loss of a loving wife, mother, daughter and sister. Grace Hefley Smalley, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. B. Hefley, old time and highly respected citizens, died at the home of her estimable parents, six miles south of Cassville, Saturday, following an extended illness with tuberculosis. She was born July 16th, 1893 and passed away Nov. 4th 1927. On Sept. 12, 1909, she was married to James J. Smalley of near Cassville, to which this union two daughters were born, who survive and are, Larayne and Margaret. At the age of thirty, she was converted during a meeting conducted at Aurora, Mo., by Rev. Goodnight, uniting with the M.P. church at that place. She bore her suffering patiently and everything possible was done in her behalf, but all efforts were in vain. In her efforts to regain her health, she went to Colorado and Arizona, but she failed to show much improvement. On various occasions she expressed herself as being willing and ready to answer the call from above and in some instances, said she would be glad to go. Impressive funeral services were conducted by Revs. Goodnight and Scott at the Corinth church, after which remains were laid to rest in the cemetery near her home, under the direction of Brandford’s Funeral Service. Among those from a distance that attended the services, were: Mr. and Mrs. Guy Dunn, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Turner, Mrs. Vadie Wagnon, Mrs. Emma McCullah, Miss Maggie Lear, Miss Jewel Nuvens, Mrs. Bennett and son, Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Jacques and family, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Muench and family, Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Mills, Mrs. Heath Berney Copeny, Mrs. Avery and family, Ren Scott and son, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Bradley and family of Aurora., Mr. and Mrs. A Chann and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Orville Wisely of Wheaton, Mrs. Mintie Wallen, Fairland, Okla., Mrs. Virgil Newman, Webb City, Mrs. Mattie Baker and daughter of Monett, Mrs. Will Wheeler Hockerville, Oklahoma, Arthur Barner and children of Kansas City and Ora Hawood of Purdy. The deceased was a kind and loving character and will be sadly missed by her large number of relatives and friends of this community where she was born and raised and spent practically all of her life. In addition to her grief stricken husband and two daughters, she leaves her splendid father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Hefley and a brother, Frank Hefley of near this city. The Democrat joins the many friends of both the Smalley and Hefley families in extending sincere sympathy in their sad hour of bereavement. Death Certificate

Her name on the census was Bertice. It shows her in 1940 Census as Berta Ball, divorced. Charles thinks she married after Alvis was killed and it didn't last long. It had her daughter Joan on 1940 census, she was living with her sister and bro-in-law in Oregon. A Henry Skelton was also on that census, so I finally got enough info that I am sure it was her father. Then I found them in 1920 census and it had her named Beatice, also the sister that she was living with in Oregon, along with J. Henry Skelton and Vesta Skelton. I went on to find J. Henry as Joseph Henry Skelton. So I am pretty sure it is correct. Census
