|Tim Joswiak||Elizabeth Ebee|
Thank you very much for your good research and for locating and photographing her stone. Your time and talents are much appreciated!
She was the first wife of Peter Ebe, my 2gr-grandfather. Her maiden name was Elizabeth Winters, and she married in Warren County on 6 April 1859. She bore them a son they named John, but she died soon afterwards. Peter went to war and left the son with his brother, David, who raised John as his own. Peter Ebe was captured a prisoner in the Civil War, at the Battle of Shiloh. He survived and remarried. By his second marriage he had five daughters, but he had no more sons. Elizabeth Winters Ebe's son, John Ebe, took part in the Oklahoma Run, married, and they had a single daughter, who wrote a book about her parents and their lives in early Oklahoma. It is called "Under the Blackjack Tree."
Thank you again for your good detective work, it is so nice to see where she was laid to rest.
Thank you for trying to find the grave of Abel Allen. I made a note on his memorial about it not being found and I will do some more research.
