Larned, Mrs. Eliza R. died 6 May 1856; Grave location (first - temporary): Causten Vault, Congressional Cemetery, Washington, DC; Moved rem. on 5 Jun 1856 to Bloomsbury, Frederick County, MD; Moved rem., date unknown, and final reinternment in Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Frederick County, MD.

After her temporary internment in the Congressional vault, her sister, Emily Newman Johnson, wife of Dr. James Thomas Johnson, had her remains moved to a private burial ground on their property, Bloomsbury, in Frederick County. At some later unknown date, possibly by 1867, all those interred at Bloomsbury, including James' parents, were moved from that location and reinterred a final time in Mt. Olivet.

Larned. On the 6th instant, Mrs. Elizabeth R. Larned, consort of Col. Benjamin F. Larned.

Elizabeth Rachel Newman was at first married to Edward G. Woodyear on June 18, 183? and is believed to have had one son with him. She then married James Larned who was an auditor for the U.S. Treasury Department and he died Aug. 2, 1849. She then married James' first cousin, Benjamin F. Larned in 1851.

Research has found two portraits that are believed to be of Elizabeth R. Larned that were painted by Charles Bird King, a famous American artist, who was a first cousin to Elizabeth's mother, Hannah Newman. It is believed that both portraits were painted during the time of her third marriage to B.F. Larned.
