Here is a reply to my post for information about Lucretia R. Carothers:

If you've not searched the family trees on two women are shown to be two of the 10 children of James Haskell Redwine Jr. and Frances Ann Fowler; Bertha Lucretia Redwine married first to John H.Carlisle in 1924 in Prescott,AZ; he died in 1934 in AZ; then apparently married to William Carothers.

Ella Beatrice Redwine first married to Charles Wesley Yount in 1900 in TN.(based on the surviving children in her obit-this famiy is in Anderson Co., TN in 1920-children listed are Vivian age 15, Anna age 8, Everett age 6, Charles Jr. age 4, and Mark age 1.Charles Wesley Yount registered for the WWI draft in Campbell Co., TN, birth date May 6,1882 and was a coal miner-next of kin Ella Yount)

Again, based on the survivors; the surviving sister "Mrs.Leslie Moser", was Gypsey Frances Redwine.

If you've not wandered through the online birth and death certificates for AZ, there are death certificates for Lucretia's husbands, and birth records for children of the youngest Redwine daughter Edna Earle who married Joseph Gibson.

I think I had initially looked up John H.Carlisle in Arizona's online database, but narrowed my search to Yavapai County. Actually, his death certificate is in Gila County. It looks like he took his own life with a gun on May 17, 1934 in Claypool, Gila County, AZ. Lucretia Carlisle is listed as his wife, but not as the informant on the death certificate. No doubt a very sad tale there.
