Remembered as a sweet, loving woman, she was the only child of Dr. William H. Monteith who was wounded during the Seven Days Battle of the Civil War and died of his wounds at a Richmond hospital. Her mother was Virginia Frances Paschal Monteith, who remarried John Alford.

Willie Elizabeth married James A. Tucker, and moved with her husband from Georgia to Texas in a covered wagon in the 1880s. Mother of 11 children, she contracted polio in the 1930s. Among her descendants are Sammie Lee, Ernestine and Betty Jane Tucker (granddaughters), who sang professionally as The Tucker Sisters.
