Eliza Adeline Knight Dooley
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 13, 1857
Dry Branch
Kanawha County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Nov. 5, 1937
Dry Branch
Kanawha County
West Virginia, USA

Eliza was the daughter of Jack Knight and Nancy Buckley, and the wife of James M. Dooley.

She and James were the proud parents of Nannie Elizabeth Dooley, Mary Dooley, George Whitfield Dooley, Charles M. Dooley, John L. Dooley, Jesse L. Dooley, and Cora Frances Dooley. According to the 1900 census, Eliza had also given birth to 3 other children who didn't survive (I don't know their names yet).

Eliza's DOB above may not be correct; it's based on the age on her death certificate (80 years, 2 months, and 23 days). FindAGrave member Pj (#47435333) found the following obituary for her in the 08 November 1937 (Monday) edition of The Charleston Gazette (WV):

"Mrs. Eliza Dooley, 80, died yesterday at her home at Dry Branch.

The body was taken to Pryor mortuary at East Bank. Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. Nannie Curry of Packsville, Mrs. Mary Griffith of Dry Branch and Mrs. Cora Batten of Owens; three sons, George Dooley of Crown Hill, Charles Dooley of Dry Branch and J. L. Dooley of Cincinnati; 19 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Dry Branch Free Will Baptist church. The Rev. Charles Pettry will officiate and burial will be in the Dry Branch cemetery."
