Eliza Jane Lane Alward
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar., 1833
Orange County
Indiana, USA
Death: Mar. 24, 1912
Franklin County
Kansas, USA

Family records list her birth date as 1835, which is consistent with her grave stone. However, she reported March 1833 in the 1900 census. Given that her younger sister Mary Ann was born February 1, 1835, the 1833 date is more likely to be correct.

Married to Calvin Leonard on December 15, 1853. She was his 2nd wife, and was the niece of his first wife, Lucy Giles. Family stories report that Calvin and Eliza had no children of their own, but raised several other children.

Deed records indicate that Calvin and Eliza migrated to Kansas circa 1858.

Married to Albert Augustus Alward on February 6, 1893 in Quenemo, Osage County, KS.
