Looking for RAY of Arkansas

Query by MarySueBenton

Trying to find death date, place and burial of E. M. Ezekiel RAY born June 1860 in Alabama.
Married Mary Lawrence 17 Aug. 1878 in White Co., Arkansas. Children: Willie b. 1879, James b. 1882,
Jesse b. 1887, Phaty (girl) b. 1888. All born in White Co. That is last I can find on him.

In 1897 a Mary RAY marries Edward P. Sutherlin, White Co. Arkansas, lists the same children as RAYs
so I think Zeke had died or divorced her between conception of Phaty and her remarriage.

Also looking for Haley Malinda "Linnie" RAY b. Feb. 1880, White Co., Arkansas, married Charley Benton
06 May 1894 in White Co. She was my grandmother. I have the info on her after marriage just can't find her family. Her death certificate says that Zeke RAY is her father and mother is unknown.

I need to know who both her parents were, when and where they died and burial places. The family lore is that
her mother was full-blood indian. The RAYs were said to be Cherokee.
