|Death: ||Jul. 23, 1922|
Elizabeth (Betsy) was born in 1837 in Tennessee according to census records. She was the daughter of Joshua Fisher and Selena Burnett Fisher.
On the 1860 census, Elizabeth was living with her parents in Knoxville, Ray County, Missouri. In 1870, she is listed in Polk, Ray County, Missouri, with her mother Selena and a son, William. Elizabeth's last name at that time was Nelson. So far I have not come across any marriage records to give a name to Mr. Nelson.
In 1876, Elizabeth married Henry McKown. He was previously married to Susan Gorham. In 1880, Henry, Elizabeth, William Nelson (Elizabeth's son), Mary Elizabeth McKown (Henry's daughter), and Sylvester McKown (their child together) were living in Knoxville, Ray County, Missouri. William and Mary Elizabeth married in 1882.
Elizabeth continued to live with Mary Elizabeth Nelson after the death of both of their husbands. The family first moved to Indian Territory, then to Washington state. Elizabeth died in Tacoma, Washington, at the age of 85.
