Daisy Ann Butcher married Silas Earl Wisley on October 15, 1899.  She gave birth to identical twin girls on October 17, 1900.  Just weeks later (November 3, 1900) she died of blood poisoning (sepsis, deadly infection).  The girls were raised by their grandfather Calvin Wisley who left each of the girls $1,000 at the age of 14 when they started working and earning their own way.
