Looking for Elizabeth (Lizzie) ANDERSON married Jesse R. MARKWELL

Query by dsmarkwell

Jesse R. Markwell (b. 1843 - d. 1919) married Elizabeth (Lizzie) Anderson (b. abt. 1840 - d. 1925) about 1867. They lived in Hillsboro and Flemingsburg, Fleming County, Kentucky. They are my great-great grandparents. I cannot find much information on Lizzie other than she was a school teacher.

Jesse and Lizzie had five children. My great-grandfather, Charles M., Russel H., Frank, Marietta, and Herschel L. Markwell.

Also, I am not completely sure if Anderson is her maiden name or a married name, because acording to the "History of the Town of Hillsboro & Its Inhabitants," published in the Fleming Gazette on June 25, 1953, it states ...Mrs. Lizzie ANDERSON, who later married a Mr. MARKWELL... Perhaps the Mrs. is a typo.

In looking at the 1860 Census - I wonder if could this be my Lizzie Anderson. The date of birth is correct. Plus, it makes me think it is because she had a daughter she named Marietta (perhaps named after her sister).

Another conflict I have is her place of birth. If the above Lizzie is mine, she was born in Kentucky. However, the 1920 Census states Louisiana. Another typo?
