Does anyone have any information on a Mary Stephens in Greene County, Arkansas (b. abt. 1858)?

+1 vote
I have been stuck on this for a long while -

Do any of you have any information on Mary Stephens born in Arkansas about 1858 and married William R. Kerby in Greene County 6 March 1877?

They had two daughters, Sarah & Luvenia, and are listed in the 1880 Census but I have no idea what happened to them after that.

I would greatly appreciate any information, help, advice with this one!

    Thank you Betty. I believe Lou Venia Akins Thomason is the cousin of the Luvenia Kirby I am looking for.

    I just created a profile for her:
