Elizabeth Snook, who was my great great grandmother, was born on January 25, 1791, somewhere in Pennsylvania. When the census of 1850 was taken, Elijah and Elizabeth were living in Brookville Township, Franklin County, Indiana. Their first child, who was born on March 29, 1833, in Indiana, was named Adin Updike. He would become my great grandfather.

Elijah eventually moved his family to Clinton Township, in Lynn County, Iowa. I don't know when the move took place or how long they lived in Linn County, but Elizabeth, died there on August 24, 1864, during the Civil War. She’s buried in Sisley Grove Cemetery, Clinton Township, Linn County, Iowa.Her stone lies flat on the ground. It's heavily weathered, but still legible after all these years.
