    I found a FindaGrave for a Lillian Williams , born 1925 died 2017 and buried 30 odd miles away in Macedonia Baptist Cemetery, an African American cemetery. She is the only one that actually matches the information although the birthdate is New Years Day, which makes me think that whoever buried her might have not known her real birthday. What is intriguing is that the cemetery is in Lincoln Parish, where she lived. She just has a cemetery supplied metal marker with a paper insert, not a stone. [​IMG]

    Perhaps the family was fractured in the past and contact was lost? Perhaps my Lillian isn't the same Lillian which would be quite the coincidence.

    it’s so odd that her Doenetwork was added on Sept 2017 and she passed away on Nov 2017

    Maybe after 50 years of her being missing, her family decided to create a memorial for her.

    It's not the same Lillian Williams. The headstone belongs to Lillian Peevy Williams. Also, the picture of the cemetery provided marker was taken within a year of her passing, so there's a very good chance that the actual headstone hadn't been placed yet.

    Not unusual at all having two Lillian Williams born in the same area in the same year. Lillian was a popular name in the 1920's and Williams is in the top 10 for most common last names.
