|Death: ||May 19, 1901|
Frances Elizabeth McAllister, known among her friends as "Lizzie McAllister," was an intellectual star of the brightest magnitude, but with no physique to sustain it. She graduated with honors from the best schools in Georgia. She took to literature, wrote character and dialect stories successfully, and became widely and favorably known as a writer of short stories. She married Dr. Wm. H. Leyden, December 8, 1897 [sic], whom she survived several years. They left two children, Estelle Dibrell, and John McAllister, though his mother, after his father's death, added to his name "Wm. Herring." She died May 18, 1901.
