1879, birth or death date of one or both persons ?
William died in 1879.   Lucinda lived into the 1900s. We have documentation of that.

 

They were both born in 1835. But William was born in NC I think. We believe Lucinda was from Bell County or at least Texas. The two met and married in Parker County in the 1860s.

The following is from an unsourced pedigree on familysearch.  Couldn't find a matching death record. or one for Lucinda who was living in 1900 in the same locations. And LC York listed as widow in 1880.

That is my Family!!!  Thanks your for this "William Matthew York Death: 21
July 1878 Belton, Bell County, Texas" -- its new information and a year
different from what we had..  I have 3 cemeteries to go look at near Rogers
TX in Bell Co now to see if I can find his grave.  The exact date  of
William M will help.  My brother found a document that says Lucinda died in
1919.  Their only son James Madison who died in 1931 had moved to Del Rio
Texas so it possible he took his mother Lucinda with him.  She may be
buried there.

Thanks again Judy

If the cemeteries are active cemeteries, you can often call the offices ahead and ask if they have a record of William Matthew York buried there in the late 1870's. The often have index cards of the graves (and exact location.)  It's probably worth a phone call.  And if you are in the area looking at cemeteries anyway, I would go to the clerk's office to see if there is an actual death certificate of sorts.

Happy Hunting!
