    Died 1881–1900 
    • online family tree gives her death as May 5, 1885. Can not verify this information.

      On the 1900 census, Paulina Walden is listed as being the mother of 8 children, 5 of whom are living. Have names of all 8 children; of these, can account for five living in 1900: Stephen, John, Coge, Lewis and Mayme.
      This leaves Lou Ella, Sally and James - all unaccounted for in 1900. Thus, if that census reading is correct, these are the three who died before 1900.
    Buried
    • Unknown
      Husband James is buried at Oak Hill, but there is no record of Lou Ella being buried there.
