Esther died at age 50 from tubercular peritonitis on 23 June 1926 in Calhoun County, West Virginia.2 Esther's body was interred in the Husk Cemetery, Calhoun County, West Virginia; The inscription reads, "Although the death certificate actually gives June 5 as the day of burial, the 25th makes more sense as that would be two days after Essie's death, a typical length of time. My theory is that the "2" was simply omitted in error."2
