      (2) Elizabeth HOLDEN is listed as a boarder in a household headed by U. J. KILLPATRICH in the 1885 NE state census of Union Township, Butler County, NE. [The enumeration date of the 1885 census was 3 June 1885, about 24 days before U. J. married Elizabeth's daughter, E. C. (HOLDREN) DEPUE.]

      Elizabeth is listed in the 1885 census as a person who was then 87 years of age; therefore, according to the 1885 census, she was born in about 1798. According to the 1885 census, she was born in NY, and both of her parents were born in NY.

      (3) According to an undated note, written by an unknown person, in the possession of John Finch , "Elisabeth [(French)] Holdren died Dec 6 1885." This note was discovered in November 2010 in a "Whitman's Sampler" box stored in a cedar chest that had belonged to Mr. Finch's grandmother, Linnie Angeline (Osier) Schweser, who died in 1949.

      (4) Based on the inscription on Elizabeth's tombstone, which states that she died on 6 December 1885 at the age of 88 yrs, 1 mo and 14 days, the compiler has calculated Elizabeth's birth date to have been 22 October 1797.
