JEFFERSON COUNTY IL 
OBITUARIES
Mrs. E. P. Grant, 

Elisabeth Brockman was born in Taswell Co., N.C., January 19th, 1815, 
of German and Irish parentage. She lived there until her mother died in 
June, 1825, when she moved with her father to Rutherford county, Tennessee, 
and remained there until her marriage with Edmond P. Grant, June, 1839, and 
lived with him and her family until his death, when she purchased a farm in 
Cub Prairie, about six miles south of this city, and lived there until the 
spring of 1872, when she came to live with her daughter, Mrs. Susan E. Patton, 
in this city, and has remained a member of the family since. 
Father and Mother Grant, with their two children,
Nannie and Susan, joined the M. E. Church, at Bethel in 1857. Mother Grant
joined the church at the age of 16 years, and we who know her best believe
that she has lived her life in accord with her profession and that a crown
awaits her beyond the valley. She died at the residence of her friend,
Mrs. Annie L. Pace at nine o'clock p.m., June 13, 1893, age 78 years, 4
months, 6 days. Her last hours were the brightest and best of her Christian
experience.
