Ancestry.com. Missouri Marriage Records, 1805-2002 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: The Generations Network, Inc., 2007. Original data: Missouri Marriage Records. Jefferson City, MO, USA: Missouri State Archives. Microfilm.2,3 Patsy Palmer married Horatio Gates Bruce, son of Horatio Bruce and Eliza Beasley, 3 August 1848. Patsy Palmer died 15 June 1894 , Johnson County, Texas at age 70, The picture of the marker clearly has this date.
This is also the date in the family Bible.4 She died 26 November 1884 , Johnson County, Texas at age 60 and was buried Caddo Cemetery, Johnson County, Texas.4
     As of 26 May 1840,her married name was Graves.2,3 She has been called Martha. As of 3 August 1848,her married name was Bruce (Palmer).

          Mabel Glover Root has a note:

"Patsy, 12/24/1823 m 5/24/1840 to Horatio Bruce. He died in Mo in 1882 and she then lived with her son, John Bruce. Other children Richard Bruce and Clara, lived nearby."

No source for this information, and it does not jibe with the other available information. I think she said "Mo" when she meant "Tx"

Also, the marriage to Horatio was 1848. The marriage in 1840 was to Peyton Graves.

Hiram Bruce, age 15, and Richard Bruce, age 11, both born in Missouri are shown on the 1860 census of Buchanan, Johnson County, Texas, with H. G. Bruce, 36, and Patsy Bruce, 36. Also in the household were Clarissa R. Bruce, 3, F, b Texas, and John H. Bruce, 7/12, b Texas.

H. G. is a farmer and Hiram is a farmer's apprentice.

Hiram is Hiram Graves, son of Patsy and her first husband, Payton Graves.5
