  • Census: 1900 Piatt Co, IL "Alcsia J." 48 KY KY KY b. July 1851
  • Census: 1910 St. Clair Co, IL "Eliza J."
  • Burial: 18 MAR 1916 Bequaith Cemetery, Tazewell Co, IL
  • Note:
    The spelling of her name varied greatly from one census to the next. I believe it was Alsey. 1900 census notes she was the mother of eight with five living children. What I believe to be her death record, in my possession, from Tazewell Co, IL, states her name as Elias J. Lawson, born in 1859 but age 65, born in Ky and father Joseph Lawson, no mother's name on the record. Her age at death would indicate she was born in 1851-1852 not 1859.

    There are two cemeteries in Tazewell Co, Illinois that are named Bequaith. I do not know which one she is buried in.
