If the A. initial is accurate, there's an Annie O'Connell with father born Maine & mother born Ireland in Illinois in 1880:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-9YYY-21C?i=22&cc=1417683  Maybe?

This appears to be the correct family in the 1880 ceusus.

William O'Connell died in 1921. His obit refers to  a daughter "Mrs. Annie Fuller"

Ellen O'Connell died in 1911. Her obit refers to a daughter "Mrs. F.G. Fuller"

Her brother Joseph died in 1940.

She is referred to as "Mrs Frank G. Fuller" in his obit.

========

The wedding announcement in the Springfield paper for 30 June 1897 gives the parents name.
