Elizabeth died at the age of 76 on 20 July 1849 in New York City, New York from "Cholera."
Elizabeth Kinzie's estate was disputed by her son Solomon Kinzie and went before the New York Surrogate's Court. Elizabeth's other son, Owen Kinzey, is listed as the administrator of her estate. The records include a list of expenses in July 1949 through the end of 1850. The record also includes a statement by Owen Kinzey accounting for the expenses on the estate and that Elizabeth died interstate and that she left "her surviving three children, her only heirs at law, to wit, Thomas Kenzie, Solomon Kenzie and the defendant (Owen Kinzey) ..., who alone were entitled to the distribution of her effects after the payment of debts." The record also includes a dispute between Solomon and Owen regarding Solomon's share of the distribution. The records include written statements and receipts from Owen and Solomon.Note that the spelling of the family's last name varies based on the writer and it is written as Kinzie, Kenzie, Kenzey and Kinzey in the included documents. ~ Allison Mackler, 17 May 2017.
