Tyner/Gordon Families

My great-grandfather, William Clark Tyner, was born in Cleburne on Feb. 2, 1873 and died on Aug. 28, 1897 in Cleburne. He was the son of Lewis J. Tyner and Nancy Amanda Sloan. He married Sallie A. Gordon. Her parents were James Harvey Gordon and Nancy Ross. They had two very young children when he died. She became very depressed and was sent to the Insane Asylum in Terrell, TX to live out the last 10 years of her life. The children were given to neighbors, the Gillespies, to raise. None of the Tyner researchers I have met even knew about Sally. I have all the story except how William died. He was only 23 and was never even mentioned in family research until I added him 10 years ago. If anyone has information about his death, I would really appreciate knowing about it. Also,, I have no information on the death of Nancy Ross. Thanks.
