Eunice was an orphan, shipped to Alton for adoption either from the east on an "orphan train," or up the river on a barge from the south, taken in by someone who needed a worker. Either way, her early years sound bleak.

First wife of Isom Henry Antrobus, Eunice died young from complications from birthing twins; one twin is buried with Eunice, the other perhaps lived a few days and was buried beside her.

Mother of Nancy Livenia Antrobus Gaffney, Sarah Adeline Antrobus Handlin, and William Henry Antrobus.
