The Death of Elizabeth (Reynolds) Dickinson

Elizabeth Reynolds was my 3rd great-grandmother. She was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire, England, in July of 1833, a daughter of a Thomas Reynolds and Ann (Park) Reynolds. Her father was a plasterer by trade and the family was counted on the U.K. Census of 1841 and 1851, living in Wakefield.

Elizabeth married John Dickinson on February 10, 1856, and had four children. They came to America in 1880 and John died in 1889. When the 1900 census was taken, Elizabeth was living in the home of her son, William H. Dickinson, at 318 Gross Street.

Her other son, Harry, lived nearby at 310 Gross Street. His family was listed on the previous census page.

Elizabeth died from pneumonia on February 7, 1905, probably at her son's home. She lived 71 years and is buried in Allegheny Cemetery.
