Elizabeth lived in Johnson, Vermont.
Confusingly, an obituary for her brother William lists all the siblings and lists Elizabeth a Jane Hale of Townsend instead.
There are a number of entries for Dean family members in the Whitten family bible that couldn't be interpreted.
The bible also contains a newspaper clipping about the marriage of George H. Lorman and Mabel Bourassa, where the reception was held at the groom's mother's house, Elizabeth Lorman of 57 West Fifth Street. Presumably this is not the same woman.
