Sunday's Obituary: Eliza Carpenter nee Bell (b.1851 - d.1931)

Eliza Carpenter (nee Bell) was the daughter of William Bell and his wife Eleanor (nee Sneed) and was born in 1851.  In 1879 she married John Henry Carpenter with the marriage registered at Forbes, together they raised a large family.  Eliza died in 1931 and John in 1933 they are both buried at Bogan Gate General Cemetery (inscriptions  here  and here ).  My connection with her is that she is my 3rd Great Grand Aunt.
