Summary

Elizabeth Emeline Radcliff was the daughter of James Radcliff (1804-1884) and Hannah Mariah Coplin (1816-1902). She was born in Harrison Co., VA (later WV) on 19 Jun. 1845. The family later moved westward from state to state, eventually ending up in TX. In 1863, Emeline married James Madison Commander, either in LA or in Parker Co., TX. She and her husband had 10 children: Robert; Edward Forrest; Samuel C.; Charles Morgan; Mary; Fannie; Thomas; Claude; Joe; and Lula (Peg). According to family stories handed down from older generations, Emeline and Madison eloped and she was disinherited by her family because of it. In her later yrs., she reportedly told family members of having traveled by horseback and covered wagon as a child and of having had to hide from hostile Indians to save her life. After her husband's death in 1891, Emeline Radcliff Commander moved to Ft. Worth, where she and her children settled in what was called the Stove Foundry, in the southwest section of the city.
