Sister of John William Bolin. Her husband's name was Mert (Meart) Mays, and they had children by the names of Earl, Mollie, Ara and Pearl.An old photo had written on the back that they lived in Joplin, MO and had a tombstone company. Haven't been able to ever find her on a census record, or find a marriage record. I researched the Joplin web site, and called the Library there for maybe an obituary, but to no avail. One cemetery website has a Sarah Mayes listed, but another has the same grave as Sarah Hayes, which is the correct one, for I was able to find the Death Certificate for it. So.....a dead end there also.
It's possible they moved on to Oklahoma according to one family source. They had/have family in Shannon County, Missouri and possibly Clay County, Arkansas.
If anyone has any information or ideas for help in locating Sarah or any of her family, please let me know.
