Altho the marriage to Ezra Beardsley is mentioned in County Histories, none found to date (August 2020) indicate her maiden name nor her place of birth. She appears in the 1860 census with daughter Marilla Nancy Morse; that census record reports her POB is New Jersey. Many family trees indicate she was born in Rhode Island.
