Elizabeth Covington (1862-1939)

Photo Details

This is my Great-Grandmother Elizabeth "Lizzie" Covington. She married William "Willie" Eli Simmons on Apr 7, 1881. Elizabeth met William Eli when she was invited to visit her sister Mattie. While married, Elizabeth and William Eli would travel to New Orleans to buy for the store and to do early family Christmas shopping. They would go by buggy and horse to Osyka (about 10 miles) and take a train to New Oleans. Their favorite eating places in "the city", were Kolb's Restaurant and old Faubacker's Restaurant. They always stopped at the Pennsylvania Hotel, one of the principal hotels of that day. William's home and land was sold when his estate was settled after his death.
