Elizabeth Lord Davis Hanebury was an avid amateur genealogist. She was an amazing soul who would bend over backwards to help other family researchers on the Rootsweb mailing lists and Rootsweb and Ancestry message boards for many years. We were among those who benefitted from her tireless assistance, and she did a lot of the early work identifying and evaluating many of the collections included in our Free Birth Records Information pages.
Elizabeth passed away in May 2019 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, where she had lived for a number of years. Unfortunately, we have been unable to find an obituary for her on the web, but you can find more information about her ancestry at Geni.com and in the family tree she uploaded to the DAVIS LEWIS LORD WILLS tree at Worldconnect on June 9, 2015 (note the 2019 date shown online is the date Ancestry moved her tree to the new server, the actual date of her upload before the move was in 2015). People with paid memberships to Ancestry.com may prefer visiting her DAVIS LEWIS WILLS LORD member tree at Ancestry, which was last updated by her in 2019.
You also can see her ahnentafel (ancestry) chart Ahnentafel for Elizabeth Hanebury at WorldConnect and view a pedigree chart of just her ancestors at Pedigree for Elizabeth Hanebury at WorldConnect. Both the ahnentafel and pedigree views will be limited to 6 and 4 generations, respectively, until Ancestry repairs the new family tree software they have created.
Elizabeth has a profile at WikiTree, where she entered information about her parents and their ancestors.
Besides helping individuals, she transcribed and proofread data for various USGenWeb projects. You can see many of these contributions with this google USGenWebArchive Site Search. You can add a particular surname or location of interest to the search.
And you can find the FindAGrave memorials she created as well as the photos she contributed by visiting the Eliz Davis Hanebury Member Profile at FindAGrave.
Elizabeth also submitted burials for a number of cemeteries to Internment.net. The site is difficult to get to load, but we found burial listings there by her going direct to Internment.net and then browsing the site by state and then county. Her contributions include burials for Brower Cemetery and St Andrew Episcopal Cemetery in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and St Joseph's Cemetery in Weedsport, New York.
May her dear soul rest in peace!
