More About Ella May (Stevens) Eastabrook

Main Page ~ Index
Ella May Stevens - clipped from a photo with her family
Ella around 1898, about 33 years of age.

Ella was born in Pike Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania in October of 1864, the only child of Jonathan Brink Stevens and Sarah Cathyrn (Rockwell) Stevens.  She was a good student and attended the Camptown Academy from 1880-1884.  This was a relatively new school for young people who wanted to further their education past the eighth grade.  At that time students attended for seven months of the year.  She was also a member of the Stevensville Presbyterian Church and was the Sunday School's Secretary in 1884. 

In 1885 at age twenty, she married Frank Edward Potter Eastabrook who was also a native of Stevensville and fellow churchgoer. 

Ella and Frank raised two fine children, Victor S., later of Binghamton, NY and Mildred Clara ( Mrs. John Andrew Morrow) of Towanda, PA.

Ella was a lifelong resident of Stevensville, which was named for her great grand uncles Nathan and Aden Stevens who arrived in the spring of 1794. 

She died 13 May 1933 at her home after a short illness from pneumonia and complications, and was buried in nearby Camptown Cemetery.  She was 68 years old. 

Her obituary states that she was "one of the best known residents of the southeastern part of Bradford County."
