Her brother and sisters attended the school taught by their mother's first cousin, Eliza R. Snow, for whom Eliza was named. In January, 1846, Eliza's mother gave birth to twin daughters who died just after birth, her mother followed the twins in death, passing away on January 27, 1846; this was just before the Saints were driven out of Nauvoo. Little Eliza was only four years old. Their lives in Nauvoo had been difficult as their father was away on missions much of the time. Her father, Lucius, remarried a young widow. With his daughters, his wife, and three of her children, he started West with the Saints. They did not get far when Brigham Young called him on a mission to England. Eliza went with the remaining family to Garden Grove where her father returned after his mission. Again her father was assigned to serve at New Orleans, Louisiana, as an Immigration Agent. He took his wife, but left the children with an older sister at Winter Quarters. By June 1850, the family was together again and on their way West. Eliza, eight years old, walked barefoot most of the way. She suffered with her feet in later years. When Eliza was sixteen, she planned to marry her childhood sweetheart, George Washington Haws. However her father made other plans when he and Duncan McAuthur decided to exchange daughters as polygamist wives. Eliza became the second wife of Duncan he was sixty-one years of age. After his death she married his son, Washington Perry McArthur, as his second wife. They had six children and also took two Indian children. After the death of Washington, Eliza struggled to care for her large family. Fourteen years later, when most of the children were married, George W. Haws lost his first wife. Eliza and George W. Haws were united in marriage. On April 19, 1892, her sealing to Duncan McArthur was cancelled by permission of Wilford Woodruff. On the same day she was sealed to George W. Haws. In 1893, they moved to Teton, Fremont County, Idaho. Eliza Rebecca was dearly loved by all for her amiable and cheerful disposition. She lived the life of a true Latter-day Saint, being ever ready to help others in time of need. She died of cancer and is buried by the side of the man of her choice. (Buried in Teton-Newdale, Idaho Cemetery, George Washington is buried in Riverside, California)
