    • The 1910 Illinois census shows Elizabeth as the 4-yr old daughter of William and Florence Campbell, living at home with her parents and siblings. 1910 U.S.Census, Kendall twsp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 624, roll 295, stamped p. 234). The 1920 census lists her as a 14-yr old daughter living at home with her parents and 6 siblings. 1920 U.S.Census, Kendall twsp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 625, Roll 380, stamped p. 42).

      The Kendall County [IL] Record (12 July 1933) reports: "Miss Alice Johnson and Miss Margaret Croushorn of Aurora,... Mr. and Mrs. Will Croushorn of New Lenox, Mr. and Mrs. Russell Rink, Mr. and Mrs. Elnathan Wheeler and daughters and P.E. Croushorn of Aurora enjoyed a picnic dinner at the William Campbell home on Sunday [9 July]."
