Biography

Eliza Becker was born November 9, 1848 in Allen County, Ohio to John Becker and Mary Rauch. Both of her parents were born in Germany. She was single her entire life, she made a "living" as a seamstress. She died on January 4, 1931 in Columbus Grove, Putnam County, Ohio, and was buried in Truro Cemetery.[1][2]

In 1850, we find her living with her parents, and older siblings Catherine and Francis, while Catherine also appears in the 1860 census, Francis does not and therefore must have passed away as a child.[3]

In 1860, she is living with her family[4]

Because her parents died in 1863, and all of the spellings of the last name (Becker, Bercher, Baker) finding her in later census records has been a challenge. I wonder if this is Eliza working as a servant in 1870[5]

In 1880, she was living with the Mapel family. It is assumed that it is part of the family that her sister, Sarah married into.[6]

Because the birth matches, I believe she is living as a boarder in this household in 1900[7]

In 1910, she was living with her sister, Matilda Brewer[8]

In 1930 she was living with her niece, Nellie Mapel[9]
