she was born abt 1843 in tn (possible Macon) parents James Kerley amd Elizabeth Ann Roric. She was married to Jesse Anderson Newton Cypert in 1860 in Izard, Arkansas. She died in Randolph County Arkansas in 1910. I am almost certain she is buried in Igram Cementary next to her daughter, my greatgrandmother Nancy Ann Shepherd and several of her other grown Shepherd grand children. I have a picture of her husband Jesse A N Cypert but have not been able to find any of her Kerley relatives that might have a pic of her. As far as I know she and Jesse had only one child, Nancy before he went off to civil war and got killed. Thanks!

Have you tried contacting the cemetery where her daughter is buried? They'll know if her mother is there as well.

I would also post to the Kerley and Cypert boards, since it's unlikely that relatives of your line will be looking at this board.

Another possibility -- Try contacting the public library where Violet Cypert last lived. They often have "clippings" files on local people.

Thanks, I am pretty certain I have seen Violet's headstone in the cementary where my family is buried. So, I am just hoping to reach a family member on her side (Kerley's) who might accidently have a photo of her they would care to share. I have a photo of her husband Jesse, and of course my greatgrandmother, her daughter Nancy Ann, just wanted one of Violet. Many thanks!

Many thanks to the person in Albuquerque who answered my post. It means a lot for me to findly find a greatgreat grandfather whom I wasn't even looking for. I had learned that he may have died at Shiloh but now I have proof. Ironicaly I live about eight miles from Shiloh and even more interesting is the fact that this person Albuquerque, (Thank You So much) is where my husband is from. Up most regards to you!

You had posted this again on the brick wall board, and I replied to that one, that Violet's pension says Shiloh but his service record at the time says died at New Hope Church. See my other post for images.
