Temporal coverage
Excerpted from the Boone County Recorder, “In Memory of Mrs. Eliza Tanner.
Eliza A. Stephens was born October 5th. 1819, and died February 3rd, 1909. She was married in June, 1842, to Ebenezer Fisk, and December 14th, 1858, she married Richard Tanner. In 1830 she made the Good Confession under the preaching of Walter Scott, one of the pioneer preachers of the Restoration Movement, which began in the early part of the nineteenth century. She was the last of the charter members of the Florence Christian church. From a family of thirteen only two survive her, John Stephens, who is visiting relatives in Missouri, and Benjamin Stephens, who owns and lives at the old home on the pike above Florence. She leaves, also, four children, seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren, to mourn her departure.

For years Mrs. Tanner has lived in the past. She was not acquainted with the present world, but talked of things in the past. She knows more people in the other world than in this one. For years the tender hands of those who loved her have ministered to her wants. God blesses those with long lives who honor and respect their fathers and mothers.
