Obituary and Biographical Detials

Death certificate informant was her sister Mary Anderson Haythe

Nephew George Haythe visited OCC in 2017 and said the family remembered that Elizabeth Stephens was buried “near the railroad tracks” and that they “could hear a train go by” from her gravesite. Other than that, no one still alive could remember the exact location of her grave.
