Looking for an Obituary for Mary Beardsley, widow of Ezra Beardsley and mother of William Beardsley and Marilla Nancy (Beardsley) Morse.

Died (per gravestone) 5 Oct 1863 , probably in Walworth Co, Wisconsin, but was a long resident of Racine Co.

Thank you!

I have not been able to find an obituary for her at, and have not found a death record for her at

However, I did find the 1849 will of Ezra (see, in which he bequeathed to her a parcel of land. The indexing of the land records for Racine County is rather primitive (see, but it might be possible to go through them and see what happened to her land.

Thank you for the look up and the will.  Wow, the will totally ignores his children from his first marriage.  Hopefully he took care of them while he was still living.
