    In the 1850 and 1860 census, Elizabeth (also known as Eliza) isenumerated with her second hudband, J H Elliott.  She is reported as30 years old in 1850, 40 years old in 1860, and their oldest chidl is7/17 years old, meaning born about 1843.  That would mean they amrriedabout 1842, which is the year reported for the death of her firsthusband, Jonathan Henson, father of Mary Isabella Henson.

    In 1870, they are still in the same location, but the name of thecounty was changed for a short period after the Civil War, and it isnow Davis County.  This census reports Elizabeth's birth place asKentucky.

    In 1880, Elizabeth is a widow and is reported under what may be hermaiden name, Barcroft.  Her daughter Mary Isabella and her secondhusband, Benjamin Franklin Smith, are living in the household.  Sinceshe is widowed the name Barcroft looks like it could be a secondmarried name of Eliza.  But most genealogies report her maiden namewas Barcroft, as the Pfaff genealogy above.

    I have not found a specific record of her maiden name, or of her withher parents.  She may have gone back to using her maiden name afterthe death of her second husband, James Elliott.  A couple ofgenealogies report her name as Elizabeth Hambrick Barcroft.  But thisis an error.  Hambrick was James' mother's maiden name.  James died in1876.

    Elizabeth's memorial on Find a Grave reports that Barcroft is hermaiden name and rep[ortsd both her parents' names.
