Mrs. Richard Draper

Elizabeth A. Williams was born Jan. 21, 1823, in Wellington, Somersetshire [sic], England. She came to this country when she was sixteen, with her mother, step-father (Thomas Fisher) and two sisters, who many years ago preceded her to the better land. She was married in 1844 to Dr. David Wilder, by whom she had three children, Susan E. (Mrs. G. C. Jewell of Grinnell, Iowa), Dr. David G. Wilder of Cleveland, O., and John F. Wilder of Chatham, N. Y. In 1854 she married Richard Draper, by whom she had two children, Nellie G. (Mrs. J. F. Weeks) and Frances P. (Mrs. Dr. Wells), deceased. Forty-six years of her married life were spent in DeRuyter, N. Y. In 1900 she with her husband came to Plainfield, N. J. To make their home with her daughter, Mrs. Weeks, who lived with Dr. Wells, where she has since resided. She has borne with patience and courage, the insiduous[sic] disease which finally terminated, after a few days of intense suffering, on the evening of Sept. 28, 1906, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Weeks, her two daughters and youngest son, with her husband, being with her at the last. "I need Thee every hour" was frequently on her lips, showing the source of her faith and courage. Thus passed away one of the best of wives and mothers.
