Aged: 32 years
Divie was the wife of Frank J Carter of Leachville, Arkansas. Her father was Jasper S Pettijohn, who also lived in Arkansas.  For many years, it was unknown where Divie was buried in West Virginia nor did we know who her mother was.  With the advent of computers, we got a copy of her death certificate as well as finding her burial site.  She is buried in Peach Creek Cemetery, Logan Co, West Virginia.  Her mother was Delilah Prince Pettiejohn.

Divie and her husband Frank moved from Arkansas to Logan County, West Virginia for work in the coal mines. As it happens, Frank's brother-in-law and sister, Edward and Millie Carter Nunley lived in Logan County at the time. Frank and Divie's youngest child, Willie Frank Carter, was born in Logan in 1927.  Frank worked in the coal mines, and the story goes, Divie took his lunch to him, and walking back home, on the side of a mountain, she was close to home, Willie Frank had let out a cry and she began to run, tripping and falling.  Her death was the result of the fall.  Soon after Divie's death in West Virginia in 1928, Frank took the children and moved back to Arkansas, where he remarried.
