Matilda, Matilda & Matilda

Matilda Gatton must have been a popular name.
In my research, I've found 3, but only one was raised a Wickliffe.
Born Matilda Gatton, her death certificate stated my three time great grandparents, Yost & Emily were her parents.
However, the first census she appears in, (1880) Emily is mentioned as her sister, not her mother.
Their mother was Nancy Gatton.
What happened to Nancy Gatton?
After 1880, Nancy either dies or remarries, because I can't find any other records mentioning her.
