Shared note

Possibly the second Elizabeth - presumably the first died in infancy.

Elizabeth was recorded as a widow and was living with her son James when she died.

An alternate baptism from Colin M Thomas is 8 Apr 1809 in St Just in Penwith.

Buried in a SANGSTER grave - her son James's 2nd wife was Elizabeth SANGSTER.

From http://www.familyorigins.net/pages1/eclemens.htm: Extract from local newspaper, Tarrengower Times, Saturday, September 27, 1890: Thanks to Maldon Museum and Archives Association (http://www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/tourism/Tmaldmus.htm) Another of the old identities of the Maldon district has passed away from our midst to join the "great majority". The deceased, Mrs Eddy, who was born at St. Just, in Cornwall, in 1796, completed her 94th birthday in May last. She came out to the colonies - to South Australia - over 40 years ago, and shortly afterwards came to Victoria. Mrs Eddy has been a resident of Maldon for some 35 years, during which time she has seen many changes. Some twelve years ago the old lady was deprived from her eye-sight and became totally helpless. but she was. however, well taken care of by her son James. Not withstanding the loss of sight she retained a wonderfully retentive memory, and conversed to the last of the wonderful times and changes she had witnessed in the old country. The old lady died of senility (old age), passing away peacefully in her sleep. Mrs Eddy was the first of the denomination of "Bible Christians" who came out to the colonies. she having joined the body in 1814, when 18 years old. The remains of the venerable old colonist will be consigned to their last resting place, the Maldon cemetery, at 3 o'clock this day.
