    Several trees report Louisa died in 1873, but no one has any record of discussion.  I found one genealogy that cites family stories, reporting that Lousia died of complications in the birth of her last child James Lester, who was born 11 April 1875.

    "Birth of Son James Lester (1875-1877), 11 Apr 1875 Texas, USA;  (Louisa Jane Barnett) Death abt Apr 1875;  According to family stories, Louisa died of complications from the birth of her youngest, James."
