      The old family Bible takes notice of the fact that one Eliza Kelley married one Thomas E. Clarke, in Madison County AL on Mar 4, 1833. These two people, Lizzie's parents, apparently they moved to Crittenden County, Arkansas, for the old Bible also notes that "in Crittendon [sic] County AK, on Jan 15, 1841 . . . there was born a little girl, whose name was Lizzie Kelley Clarke."
