Eliza Ann Scribner Bunker
Birth: Jul. 14, 1811
Acworth
Sullivan County
New Hampshire, USA
Death: Jan. 25, 1890
Menomonie
Dunn County
Wisconsin, USA

Eliza's birthplace was shown as Vermont on daughter Fanny's death certificate; New Hampshire on 1850, 1870 and 1880 censuses. In her own handwriting, she penned the following:

"To A. E. Hoag - By her Grandmother

Can gold gain friendship?
Impudence of hope!
Obs will mere man an Angel night forget,
Love and love only, is the loan for love
Therfore pride repress?, Nor before to find a friend
But what has found a friend in thee.
Mrs. E. A. Bunker, April 3, 1878
born July 14th, 1811
Trust in God

On Oct. 30, 1879, she wrote a letter to her daughter from Star Prairie (new Richmond), St. Croix, Wisconsin.

Her granddaughter Florence Agnes Stickney recalled visiting her grandma's house (New York) when she was a small child. "To the east my mother's parents lived, and to go to grandma Bunkers', which was a privilege, we went up a knoll back of the house, past the barn, down into a little ravine, out across a flat to the Schroon river jammed with logs at least this one time I recall over which we picked our way to the other side. And there were the beech and chestnut trees in the midst of a thick carpet of varigated Autumn leaves through which I scuffed my little shoes to uncover the nuts buried beneath. And to this day whenever I walk thru rustling leaves in the fall my memory bounds back to those scenes of my baby days. Then on thru that strip of forest perhaps a fourth of a mile to highway bordered by green-sward and right there across was dear grandma's home.

Eliza's death certificate has her age at death as 78 years, 5 months and 11 days. She died in Menomonie, Wisconsin in 1890 and was buried in Evergreen Cemetery.
