Thank you for looking Nancy. I actually found them in 1910 as Eflie Laner and Rosalander Laner, with my grandfather Ayden Lanier living with his grandfather William Ira Horne, next door. The family story was that Rosa Linda (I've seen her name listed as Rosie, Linda, Rosa, Rosalinda, Rosalander) tried to stuff him down a well when he was a baby and was committed. I feel that the family could have afforded burial and a tombstone because there is actually a family cemetery that everyone else is in, but I'm not sure they would have brought her back from Raleigh to Richlands. So, I'm assuming she died between 1910-1920 at a mental hospital. Do you know if there was another "mental hospital" besides Dix?
