  • Notes 
    • Migrated to America with her parents in 1856 living first at Oquawaka, Henderson County, Illinois and then moving to Madison County, Iowa in 1867.

      Lived with her husband the last several years of their lives in a small home in Orient, Iowa, adjacent to the home of their youngest daughter, Jennie, and her husband, Claude Bishop.

      Here is a love letter which she wrote to Samuel A. Graham in about 1866, a year before they were married:
      "My Dear Friend
      "As I cannot obtain an opportunity to talk to you as I would like I thought I would write to you and beseech you that as you value the salvation of your immortal soul you will not allow this communion season to pass and find you still out of the church. It is both your duty and your privilege to connect with the church of God. You know Jesus Christ says that he that confesseth me before men him I will also confess before my Father which is in heaven. But he that denieth me before men him I will deny before my Father which is in heaven."
      "Dearest Samuel is it because you think you are not worthy that you do not connect with the church's. If so do not allow this
      to keep you back any longer for none of us are worthy of such great privileges as the church affords. It is only through all the
      sufficiency of Christ that any of us can come. Cast all of your sins near him for he is both able and willing to save you. Go to
      him in prayer and he will hear and answer you. He says "enter thy closet and when thou hast shut the door pray to thy Father
      in secret and thy Father which seeth in secret the same shall reward of you openly. "
      "Do not think that I do not love you, for I love you most tenderly. You are my first and only love and my earnest and constant
      prayer to my heavenly Father is that we may be spared to be united and live useful lives preparing for that home in heaven
      which Christ has prepared for those who love him.

      "Your Sincere Friend,

      "Lizza T."
