     Elisabeth Buckberrough was born on 28 February 1817.1 She was the daughter of George Buckberrough and Sarah Coleman.1 She died on 9 August 1836 at age 19.1 She was buried at Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 Elisabeth's death date and burial is per Harley Misener's transcription of Troy Cemetery. He places her with George and Sarah. A more recent transcription of Troy Cemetery that appears online shows no Buckberroughs in Troy Cemetery. This may be because the stones have lain flat for a very long time and slowly been covered by the sod. Years ago, Sarah's stone was partly visible, and only recently has George's stone been uncovered. Harley Misener states that Troy Cemetery was opened around 1835 or 36 and this would certainly accomodate the possibility that Elizabeth was buried there, or even her remains being moved there in later years. Harley's transcription of Elizabeth's burial, however, does not have the appearance of an actual stone transcription, but rather an extract from one of the Methodist Church periodicals of the day:
Elisabeth, b. 28 Feb 1817, experienced religion 1835 and lived the life of the righteous and died 9 Aug 1836 leaving strongest evidence of future bliss.

Extracts of the Christian Advocate and other Methodist papers have been examined, but her death notice has not yet been found.1
