She and her husband were in the process of trying to adopt adaughter from the Girls' Home at the time of her death. Mrs. C.E. Dunton,a neighbor who came to help, left the house on 2/25/1901 and died 2 dayslater. Elzina lived with Sarah after Benjamin's death.[Obituary, ElzinaPoor]

      Three children listed in 1900

      Very interesting! Found her in the 1880 census with Capt. Henry Burgess and their 2 children. Also found Frank Coombs, her second husband, living at the home of his brother 3 doors down!

      Living with dad in June and husband in July! 2 different censuses!
