Tombstone Tuesday - Marker of Mattie Hunter

Mattie Hunter
Wood Cemetery - Jonesboro, Coryell County - Texas, USA

Tombstone reads:
In Memory of
Mattie H. Hunter
Wife of E. Crew
Born Aug 22, 1864
Departed this life
Feb 22 [?] 1880
'Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life,

[Headstone broken, verse might have ended with 'and may enter in through the gates into the city']

Mattie Hunter was my second great grandfather's (Elisha Crew) 1st wife.

I did not find out that Elisha had another wife until I found this stone. She is buried with Elisha's 2nd wife and her family. I have no further information on Mattie.
