Eliza passed away at Green Spring, Virginia. She was the wife of Peter H. Ward.

Eliza's headstone if the last fully marked grave on the property. There may be more buried here.

(Contributed by online information)
Eliza's family was from New York and tenant farmers at nearby Green Spring Plantation located about five miles west of Williamsburg. Since they did not own land, they were not allowed to bury her there. The family got permission to bury Eliza at Powhatan Plantation Manor House.
