Elizabeth McPherson Irwin
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 14, 1821, Ireland
Death: Mar. 26, 1893
Wilmington
New Castle County
Delaware, USA

Elizabeth Irwin (nee McPherson) was born in County Londonderry, Ireland, according to her death certificate. She became the wife of Leslie Irwin (interment unknown; also born in Ireland). They married about 1845 and had one son, William John Irwin. Elizabeth was widowed early on and raised her son by herself. She lived with some of her children in her later years at 1247 Wilson St. where she also died. Both she and Leslie were of Scotch/Irish extraction and both were reported to be Presbyterian.

Elizabeth's sister, Jane McKean (nee McPherson) is also buried at Greenhill with her husband, Thomas (see listings and grave photo)

Though identified as buried at Greenhill Presbyterian Cemetery on her death certificate, at least two recent family searches failed to locate a grave or head stone. Her granddaughter, Mary A. Irwin, who knew her verified that she was, in fact, buried there. A copy of her death certificate is shown in lieu of a grave photo.
