A very sad day arrived on March 17, 1904. Death claimed Elizabeth's dear William Allen Buchanan. A couple of days later his wife, children and friends gathered at a very pretty burial site at the Quarryville Cemetery to bid the beloved husband, father and friend farewell.
The 1910 census found Elizabeth living in District 2 of Hawkins Co. at the home of her son Joseph A. and Catherine.
The 1920 census revealed that Elizabeth was now living with her daughter Lucinda and her husband, and 8 grandchildren.
On Sept. 26, 1926 The Lord called Elizabeth home. Once again children and friends gathered at the Quarryville Cemetery to bid farewell to a beloved mother, grandma and friend. (bio by Audrey DeCamp Hoffman)
