The date of death and burial site for Jesse is unknown. His siblings, parentage and ancestors are unknown. It is felt that his death was war related. In 1868, Nancy took their youngest son, Jasper and her grandson, William Edwards, south to Dade Co, Missouri to live where her immediate family was. Nancy's parents: William and Naomi/Neoma Clark, and sisters: Elvira Elizabeth Clark Grantham and Neoma Clark Bruce.
