Sentimental Sunday

Elizabeth Carnefix Faudree
abt 1890

This is a small photograph that was cut down to fit a tiny frame that my grandmother had.

Eliza was born 08 Jul 1851 in Sweet Springs, Monroe, West Virginia to George W. Carnefix and Mary Susan Daugherty. She was one of at least four children born to the couple.

On 17 Dec 1878 in Monroe County, she married Stephen Ledford Faudree [1857-1929]. The couple went on to have 10 children: Ida, Bervie, Pearl, Gordon, Spurgeon, Roy, Faye, Mary, Zena, and Veda. [Mary was my grandmother.]

Eliza died on 22 Jul 1929, just six months after Stephen died. The couple are buried in the old Faudree Cemetery in Sweet Springs.
