Phebe (Unknown) Burton (abt. 1849)

Phebe [middle name?] Burton formerly [last name at birth?]

Born about 1849 [uncertain] in Rhode Islandmap

I have accessed Myheritage.com and Ancestry.com and have preformed a variety of searches. I have not found any record of birth nor record of marriage (to Benjamin Frank Burton AKA Button) that might mention who Josephine (Phebe) 's parents were. Out of desperation I went through and posted a list of Phebe's from the 1850 Rhode Island Census (that had a Phebe with a birthdate of 1849) on Phebe (Unknown) Burton's source list with Washington County hits at the top.

I don't know what to do next.

Note: in some RI census with Phebe, he is listed as Frank. see 1870 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MFFQ-69H

 It looks like there youngest child Phebe was born in 1879.  So Phebe must have died between 1879 and 1880 when Ben is listed widowed in the 1880 census.  https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M4S8-NVV

The child Phebe is living with grandmother Lucinda Larkin (Phebe's mother from census data, and several of the Lamphere family in 1900).  From the next marriage of Ben, his mother's maiden name is also Lamphere
