James and Elizabeth are not listed in the 1900 Census so James must have died before that time.  Elizabeth's date of death  is listed in Carroll Hayden's Cemeteries of  Izard County Book as November 10, 1889, but her birth date is listed as November 26, 1809, which seems to be incorrect.  James's date of death is not listed.
