Elizabeth Spurgeon married 1st to William Mounts in Jackson Co, IN, 1869; one son Robert B Mounts. Second marriage was to Ezekiel Smith. Lizzie never liked to give her true age; she was actually born in 1846 and as she changed it each census I'm sure her family hadn't a clue. I give her dates from what are on her stone.
