Elizabeth is the daughter of Thomas and Nancy Ann (Stafford) Jenkins. She married William "Will" Prosser, April 16, 1858. They had no children.

Elizabeth and Will farmed the land. At one time they had over 800 acres - farming and raising stock.

Elizabeth felt a fondness towards the Westfield Cemetery because so many of her ancestors and family members were buried there. Because of this, she insisted that he husband build a church to go along with the cemetery. Will and Elizabeth had the church built and it was dedicated and presented to the people on Nov. 16, 1902.

The church you had built is still being used today - a quaint & lovely church kept in good condition by the members of the church community. May you rest in peace and know that your legacy continues on, cousin.
