No I don't. Good question. Elizabeth was the ward of her aunt, Ann Neal McAtee, in 1871 when she received a small inheritance from her grandmother Elizabeth Neal. Found her in the 1860 census of Menard Co., IL living with her mother Clarissa Neal Spillman Dufer. In 1870 she was still in Menard Co., IL living with the family of Charles Purviance. This is in the next household to Ann Neal McAtee. Also living with that family is my great grandmother, Rebecca Montgomery. She and Elizabeth were first cousins. Charles Purviance was the son of Rebecca Montgomery's father's second wife. Both girls' mothers had died. I can't remember if I ever looked for Elizabeth in the 1880 census although I suspect she would have been married by then as she was 16 in 1870. I will let you know if I find more.
