    Source for names of Elizabeth Pancoast Harris' half siblings provided by handwritten notes of grandson Elbert C Shephard, in private collection.

    Elizabeth's maiden name was Pancoast, according to notes of conversations with my great grandmother, Elizabeth's granddaughter. Those notes indicated that Sally Miller, left a very young widow, went on to marry James Elisha Harris, who "adopted" Elizabeth. Sally and James had several more children together.

    The death certificate for Elizabeth's son, Fred Chapin, gives her maiden name as Pancoast. The informant for that certificate was Fred's wife, Eada Parrish Chapin.
    The death certificate for Elizabeth's son Cyrus says her maiden name was Harris. The informant for that certificate was Essie Chapin Finn, Elizabeth's daughter.
    The death certificate for Elizabeth's daughter, Adaline Chapin Mendenhall, says Elizabeth's maiden name was Harris. The informant for that certificate was Addie's husband, Charles Mendenhall.
