Eliza Ellen Conover was the daughter of William Tolbert [or Talbert] and Eliza (Coffey) Conover.
She married James C. Bryant about 1908. They had a son named Luther about a year later. In 1920, Liza was recorded in the census as a widow living in White Oak, Adair County, Kentucky. She had four children: Luther, age 12; Effie, age 9; Rufus, age 6; and Mary, age 2 years and 10 months.
Her death certificate indicated the cause of death was tuberculosis. It incorrectly identified her age as 31 years, 10 months and 4 days. She was actually 10 years older.
