Celestia Alice was the daughter of David Morrison & Maria Camp.

She married Richard J. Earp, 20 Apr 1868, Wyandot Co., OH. They had one son, Edwin, who died as an infant.

Celestia moved to Montana, where she was murdered by a rejected suitor.

Her tombstone was found in the basement of a drug store in Bozeman, MT in the 1960's. Although she requested that her body be returned to Ohio and that she be buried next to her husband, it is not known where she is buried. There is no record that her remains were shipped back to Ohio.

Her tombstone is inscribed:

Dearest Celestia thou has left us
Here thy loss we deeply feel
But 'tis God that hath bereft us
He can all our sorrows heal
