[note: The Bicentenial Dictionary has her having a child in 1952 in WA so I assume there is a date mix-up. Her wedding was registered in 1855 so I am assuming that the 5 & 2 look alike on the original birth certificate and/or marriage certificate. I don't have copies of either to check.] When Elizabeth died in 1860 she was only 22.
