Whatever happened to Martha Jane Cochran born 1862

Martha Jane Cochran, my great grandmother, married Alfred Myrick (Murick per records) in Orange Co, TX in 1881.  Between 1882 and 1897 she produced 6 children, two of whom were not residing with Alfred in the 1900 census.  Martha Jane was conspicuously absent.  Alfred "Alf" took a new wife, Ruskie, whom he may have had another child by.  No record is found of Martha Jane Cochran Myrick after 1881 when she married Alfred Myrick.  

Martha Jane was the second to last child of Joseph Sidney Cochran and 2nd wife Nancy Stone Watson Cochran.  A younger sister, Cornelia was married a year earlier than Martha Jane in Orange County Texas to a Henry Pointer.  The 1870 census showed Martha Jane and Cornelia living with mom, Nancy and it appears a few half brothers with the last name of Watson.  They are still in the Beaumont area at this time.

Help me find out what happened to Martha Jane.  She is great grandmother to many of us out there.  She is worthy of at least us knowing when and where she died.  So is Joseph S. Cochran's second wife Nancy, Martha Jane's mother. I have contacted some people directly and got no response, so out it goes to the world at large.

THANK YOU FOR THE  RESPONSE. Ii CAN'T GET FIND ANYTHING ON RELATIONS/PARENTS/SIBLINGS OF ALFRED MYRICK IN RESPONSE TO CARMEN MYRICK BEING RELATED.  ITS NOT MY MARTHA JANE YOU FOUND, BUT IF WAS IT WOULD BE EVEN WORSE THAN I IMAGINED.  MINE WAS BORN IN 1862 IN NEWTON COUNTY TEXAS.  I WILL BE WRITING TO TEXAS VITAL STATS DEPARTMENT FOR DEATH CERTIFICATE OR DIVORCE.

MARTHA JANE LOG: APRIL 24, 2015.  INQUIRY WITH TEXAS VITAL STATISTICS YIELDED NOTHING.  NO DIVORCE FOUND.  NOTHING ON DATE AND PLACE OF DEATH YET.  THEY ARE STILL LOOKING.
Alfred Myrick was the son of a Moses Myrick from Tennesee.  Alfred Myrick was born in Tennesee as far as I know.  I have done searches for Moses Myrick but have not found any links yet.

I have tracked down the year of death for Martha Jane Cochran's mother, Nancy Jane Stone Watson Cochran Spears. She married Edward Zebedee Spears Dec. 10, 1873.  Marriage records show him as Z Spears and her as Nancy Cochran.  She died before April 23, 1874 because Edward Z Spears remarried another widow with children, a Harriet Cotton.  Harriett Cotton was his 4th and last wife.  She had three children by him.  He had 4 children by his 1st and 2nd wives.  Still no progress on Martha Jane Cochran Myrick though.  Any breadcrumbs would be appreciated.
