Her husband had been dead for ten years and her daughter, Julia Florence, age 13, was living in Memphis with her uncle, Oliver Perry Lyles, and his family. She was attending St. Agnes Female Academy with his daughters. She is on the census with them for that year.

  George Merriman was Julia's son by George M. Merriman, Albert H. Campbell was her son by Hiram Campbell and Julia F. Cloar was her daughter by Joseph A. Lyles.
 Juley was a midwife and delivered a large number of babies in the part of the county where she lived.
 The assumption of a first marriage to a LEA was made because her name is given as Julia LEA on her marriage license with George M. Maryman (Merriman) which is recorded in Vol A, page 44. If this is true, then her marriage to Hiram Campbell would have been her third. It was recorded in Vol A, page 96. After his death, she married Joseph Lyles which is recorded in Vol A, page 171.
 Date of death was taken from BIOGRAPHICAL AND HISTORICAL MEMOIRS OF EASTERN ARKANSAS, page 408, The Goodspeed Publishing Company. She was buried in the Glover-Lyles Cemetery near the house.
