From brief online research, hopefully correct: [corrections and additions requested]
From brief online research and with help from a reader:
Lizzie A. Rowe was born about July 1868 at Charleston, Maine, the daughter of Charles and Mary J. (Lavery) Rowe. By 1900, she was working as a school teacher in Charleston or the area. She was still teaching and living with family members at the time of the 1910 Census, after which I lost track of her, until her death in 1931.
Lizzie is buried, as Elizabeth A. Rowe (1868-1931), with her brother George A. Rowe and his wife Clara A. (Rollins) Rowe at Corinthian Cemetery at Corinth, Maine.
