Biography

Also living in her household in 1860 is her sister Elsie.

She is buried in the McLellan tomb in Lafayette Cemetery. She apparently loathed the New Orleans weather, and didn't want to be buried in its soil, so she had some good Maine earth shipped south for her. Tombs are above ground in Lafayette Cemetery. Here is the inscription:

IN MEMORY OF
LEONORA LEVENSALER
WIFE OF
W.H. McLELLAN
BORN SEPT. 15, 1803
DIED AUG. 2, 1890
