Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1840
Vermont, USA
Death: Jun. 15, 1865

She married Richard Bailey on 8 Jul 1858; Solemnized by her brother, J. Stevens, Minister of the Gospel, in Benton County, Iowa (per marriage record).

Richard enlisted to serve in the war when his wife was pregnant with Eva Elatin. The children never saw their father; he died in the Civil War (he never came home) and it is not known where he was buried.

After Esther died about two years later, her two daughters, Emma and Eva, lived with their maternal grandparents, until Horace died two years after; then the grandmother and the girls moved in with their maternal uncle, Rev. Julius Stevens (they are on the 1870 census of Mount Vernon, Linn, Iowa).
