Hi,
Thank you for your offer to help.
Her name was Dessie Violet Lutz Hanger. I've also seen it spelled Deccie. Her husband was John Hanger they lived in Greenbrier Co. When she got sick John took her to her sister in Clifton Forge for care. I had the death year wrong - it was Saturday 29 Jan 1905. She was 21 years old.
I did find a newpaper announcement of her death in the Lewisburg paper.
It says she died at the home of her sister Mrs. Ada Whitlock in Clifton Forge. The announcement also said that the funeral was in Clifton Forge on Monday and that she was a Methodist. But it didn't say what cemetery; family oral tradition says she was buried at Crown Hill.
In the census records I have found the sister and her husband Jerry Whitlock living in Clifton Forge.
I appreciate any help you can offer. I hope to be in Greenbrier Co around Labor Day and thought I might be able to find her grave. I live in Arkansas.
Rose
