Miss Elizabeth Carswell, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Robert Carswell was born August 3, 1875 and died September 9, 1912 at the age of 37 years, 1 month and 6 days after an illness of several weeks. Her father died when she was 1 year old, her mother died when she was in her 6th year.
Mr. & Mrs. Samuel Blair (oldest sister's in-laws) took her into their home and cared for her until she was 15 years of age when her home was transferred to that of her sister, Mrs. J. R. Blair, where she remained until her marriage.
