Greetings from Pensacola, Florida!
I don't see an Olive Davis in the Mills County Cemeteries Book. However,
there is a Joseph Wesley Davis (16 May 1856-7 May 1939) buried in Malvern
(lot 255) as well as a "Davis, child of J.W." (also lot 255). There is also
a "Davis, Boy of Mrs." buried in lot 284.
Coincidentally, there are 2 unnamed Meadows children also buried in lot 255
with Joseph Davis and the Davis child, so there appears to be a connection
here between Davis and Meadows.
There is also a William Clarence Meadows (1891-1975) buried in Malvern, but
those dates probably do not match your William Meadows.
I hope that this helps, although I couldn't find Olive.

Looking for any and all info on Olive Brower Syas (?) and her husband
William Meadows in Mills County, Iowa, in 1874.
Who were Olive's parents? When and where was she born? (All I have is
1858, Iowa). I know she married Joseph Davis in 1895. What happened to
William? Where and when was William born? Who were William's parents. I
saw some possibilities in the 1860 census but not sure.....
I'd love to have an obit for Olive...she died Olive Davis, on or around
July 11, 1911.
Any little tidbit would be much appreciated.
