Elizabeth Jane Hart Joy Epley was born February 1831 in Kentucky and died March 31, 1913 in Burnet County, Texas. Elizabeth Jane was the daughter of Caleb Hart and Sarah "Sally" Lawson. She married on April 22, 1849 in Collin County, Texas, to James Alexander Joy, son of George and Martha Joy. Elizabeth and James had the following children; Albert Newton, Lucinda, George C. (John C.?), Andrew L., Oliver P., Anice A. "Ann", Eli Franklin, Charles C., and James A.

Elizabeth Jane married #2 on October 24, 1877 in Burnet County, Texas, to David Epley, son of Daniel Epley and Catherine Keebler.

From A. J. "Jack" Tidwell: "The site adjoining that of J. A. Joy had only one piece of broken marker that we found. The Inscription was 'EPLEY'" "A stainless steel plate riveted to a stone on the same plot had Elizabeth J. Joy [E. J. Joy] stamped in."

This memorial was transferred to me... I believe this is the same person as Elizabeth Jane Hart Memorial ID #13751021. There are no records to indicate James Alexander Joy had another wife named Jane E. Newton, or that even show a Jane E. Newton existed.
