|Eliza(s) R Snow(y) DUP Museum|
I tried to have my first child on my due date of January 21 so we could name her Eliza after several ancestors as well as this strong LDS woman. Jumping on a trampoline in the snow only gave me a cold, and our own Eliza wasn't born until a day later. (Since we didn't know what gender child we were having, Matt had joked that our boy might be happy to share a birthday with ERS but would also be fine with his own.) Grandpa Cramer called our baby "Eliza R. Cute."
Since Eliza R. Snow has no descendants, we venture to claim her as an honorary ancestor, and marvel that our own girl bears some strong resemblances and is also a poetess in Zion.
