Death of a daughterElizabeth Jane “Eliza” Davis

Note: Her date of death upper bound is deduced from the fact that her husband, Carter F. Liles, remarried in July, 1873 (to Ella Edwards). Her daughter, Mary Jane Liles, appears in Carter F. Liles' 1880 census record with his new household. Additionally, her daughter Mary Jane is explicitly remembered in her father's, Arthur Davis', will signed 3 Jan 1879, without mention of Elizabeth Jane.
