Elizabeth F. was born in Cornish, New Hampshire, and was the daughter of Joseph and Jemima (Thornton) Pierce.

She married Lawson McCloud. Their first child, Mary E. McCloud, was born 11 Jul 1842 in Massachusetts. The family must have left soon after that date because Lawson bought land in Section 20 Dundee Township 24 October 1842. Six other children were born to the couple in Illinois; Ervin L. born Nov 1850, Ralph W.E. born ca 1852, George born ca 1853/4, Albert O. born ca 1855, Ida M. born Sep 1857, Frederick W. born April 1859.

The couple can be found on the 1860 Delaware County, Iowa, census, the 1870 Mitchell County, Iowa, census and the 1880 Winneshiek County, Iowa, census.

Lawson and Elizabeth moved to Elgin, Kane, Illinois in 1894 and resided with their daughter Mary Schoonhoven at 370 N. Spring Street. Elizabeth died in 1897 and Lawson in 1899.
