    Note the place of death is reported in this genealogy as Kaufman County, instead of Parker County, Texas.  This source gives a birth date and place, but does not tell where they got that information.  But the two children John Franklin and Robert Winfield are reported as born in Parker County in 1860 and 1961 respectively.  So it would seem she died in Parker County.  I have not found burial information.

    Several genealogies have the death occurring in Kaufman, but none give any place of burial or explain the discrepancy with dates and place of birth of the two sons.  Holden reports the family moved to Parker County in 1857, before the birth of either John of Robert.  This seems to indicate that Edna died in Parker.  The marriage of Isaac to Mary Jane Osborne (Kincaide) occurred too late for her to be the mother of either of the two boys.
