Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

In the 1930 U.S. Census, Elizabeth's birth place is given as West Virginia rather than Virginia as in the other references. This could simply be recognition of the fact that West Virgina didn't split from Virginia until the Civil War, and she was in fact born in Virginia. However, it is unclear why Virginia was still used in the 1900 U.S. Census and the 1925 Iowa Census, but changed to West Virginia in the 1930 Census.
