I have not had a chance to check 1900 yet. My notes are a bit disorganized, but I remember that when I checked 1880 on disk there were 2 Keefer or Kiefer families. Have also found land records on Keefers who were early settlers of Kosciusko Co, IN. It is very possible that she lied about her age on her marriage license, or a simple error by the person doing the writing.

It also seems that she went by the name Sadie (Sarah), rather than Elizabeth. The Eliza you note should be too old to be her - but it is clear that something is off with the age. She married Walter Marion Tennant on March 02, 1901 in Kosciusko County, IN. My Dad remembers her, but doesn't remember his great - grandparents.

I will try to get ahold of the 1900 census next week at the Historical Society to see what I can find in that.
