A photograph portrait of Elizabeth Ann Frank Mardin (or Marden). Her family lived in Logan County, Illinois, where she met her future husband Elisha Mardin. He came to Kansas in 1859 and ranched near the Cottonwood River in northeast Chase County. He farmed, raised livestock, and bought cattle for Dolby Brothers, Drovers and Livestock, of Chicago. Late in the summer of 1861, he and Elizabeth were married and moved to his farm in Chase County, Kansas. In 1868, Elisha was elected county sheriff, and the Mardins' sold their farm and moved to Cottonwood Falls. Two years later in 1870, Elisha was working as a butcher in Cottonwood Falls. Diaries kept by the Mardins' are held by the State Archives and Library Division, Kansas Historical Society.

Date: Between 1861 and 1865
