|Lena Peoples Colwell|
According to an affidavit Elmira signed, she states that she is 48 years old, a widow and head of her family and is residing in Randolph County. She says that she is so afflicted and physically diseased that she was unable to attend in person at the land office. She also states that she has been residing in Randolph County since January 19, 1859, that she has a dwelling house, a corn crib and eight acres of land in cultivation. On October 12, 1859, Robert Leverett signs as a witness for Elmira Colwell, saying that he is well acquainted with her. The last date of a land sale to Elmira is on February 1, 1860. She is listed on the 1866 Alabama state census in Randolph County, the last record I have found for her.
