Looking For My Great Great Grandmother Elizabeth Lambert Noton

Question by Celese_Moore_Dodge

She married Isaac Noton about 1869 or 1870. According to the 1870 and 1880 Census she was born in Kentucky and her parents were born in Virginia. Elizabeth and Isaac Noton lived in East St. Louis, St. Clair, Illinois where Isaac Noton had lived before. They had 5 children: Charles, John, Arthur, Samuel and Martha.
Martha Noton was my great grandmother. She married Daniel Aloysius Pallas. For a time Elizabeth (Eliza) lived in San Francisco with her daughter and son-in-law. She was in the 1920 Census then after that I can't find any information on her.

Gee. I hope you can find that info. Norton is on my family tree. My paternal great grandmother was Salome Eppler, who later married Henry Edley Norton in Kansas. There's documentation of them being in Riley, Davis, Kansas, and she is buried in Manhattan, Riley, KS. She was born in Missouri. Seems like I saw the name Isaac as a middle name somewhere.

A note about the name Pallas: That is Roman. There is a legend about Pallas-Athena. Pallas was her Roman name; Athena was her Greek name. There was a contest between Pallas and Neptune to give the most useful gift to the city of Athens. He gave the horse, and thought he'd won, then she being the goddess of wisdom and strategy, gave the olive tree - which had far more uses. She she won and won the second part of her name - Athena.

It goes further back: One day Zeus had a splitting headache. So he split his head with an ax, and out came Pallas, fully clad in armor, hence her link to stragegy. Yet her wisdom on the feminine side resulted in her invention of the spinning wheel, the loom, the flute, and the trumpet. She is linked with the Tom-boy icon, and is therefore linked to androgeny, surely to strong women.

Oops! I'm very sorry. I saw the name Isaac Noton, and in my excitement, I put in an r that was not there.
