Elizabeth signed an agreement among the heirs of her father

There's no known record of Elizabeth's marriage to Jonas Bartlett, who was 15 years her senior, but she was "Elizabeth Bartlet" in her father's will and she and Jonas signed an agreement among his heirs. She's buried beside her husband in the former Unitarian Church Cemetery, Northborough.
