|Birth: ||Oct., 1839|
|Death: ||Feb. 20, 1917|
On her 1857 California marriage record (ancestry.com) Elizabeth's birth year was recorded as 1839.
The 1880 US Federal Census (census date 1 June) enumerated: N.B., age 46, and Elizabeth age 40. They were living in Newville, Colusa Co, California with their five children. N.B. was a farmer. The children enumerated were Helen 18, Julia A. 17, Loretta 11, Lillie 7 and Rosa 7.
On the 1900 Glenn Co., CA U.S. Federal Census Elizabeth was enumerated as age 53, born October 1846. (Note that her mother would have been age 52 in 1846.) (Also note that Elizabeth had only aged thirteen years in the last twenty.)
The CA Death Index recorded Elizabeth's age at death as 77. Her grave marker states "78 years".
Other than her grave marker the spelling of her name was always ELIZABETH.
Taking the birth month of October from the 1900 census, the birth year of 1839 from her California marriage record and the age at death of 77 years from the California Death Index, it might be reasonable to conclude that Elizabeth’s birth occurred in October 1839. All census records indicate that MO was her birthplace.
