From FindAGrave:

Mrs McKay was formerly Miss Lizzie Smith, and she was born in Argyle, ILL, on Feb 13, 1870 and around that place she spent her early life. When but a day of her 21st birthday anniversary she was joined in marriage to Peter McKay, then struggling for success in this county, and whose acquaintance she made while he was still a resident Illinois. They came to Mr McKay's farm in this county immediately after the marriage.

Immediate relatives to mourn her loss are the grief-stricken husband and three small children, the youngest being but a few days old.
