8. Obituary: Eulogy about Elizabeth Tupper by pastor of First Baptist Church on 14 Jul 1887 in Charleston, Charleston, SC. 15 Mrs. Eliza Yoer Tupper was indeed a "mother in Israel." She was the preachers' friend. It was the privilege of the writer to call her "Mother Tupper," and she always spoke of him as "my boy." At the time I first met her she was a woman of commanding presence, of noble character, of keen judgment, great versatility of character and intense devotion to the cause of Christ. She kept her sorrows, of which she had many, within her bosom, while she had naught but smiles and words of cheer for others. And yet it was touching to see how quietly upon a week day she would go around to the church-yard and moisten with tears of affection the graves which contained her treasures of love. At seventy she possessed the vigor of mind and body of her earlier years-her life was for her church and her God. She has gone to her reward, but her honored and useful children and grandchildren rise up and call her blessed.

Nor was it in her own children only Mrs. Tupper found matter for satisfaction and unceasing gratitude to God. Two of her grandsons preaching the glorious gospel of the blessed God, Revs. Kerr Boyce and Henry A., Jr., and an accomplished and pious grand-daughter bearing part in a work crowned in its very beginning with phenomenal success, and giving promise that the women of Mexico will be lifted speedily to the full enjoyment of the blessings of Protestant Christianity, these were among the ingredients in her daily cup of thanksgiving.

9. Book: Henry Allen Tupper's diary entry about his mother's family. 2
"I do not believe in the transmission of grace, but in my anxious desire and hope with regard to myself, as a child of God, I can not but feel a lively satisfaction that the whole of my mother's family, so far as I know of them, were godly people. I knew my maternal grandmother and can testify as to her pious living and hopeful dying. The journal of my grandfather, Jacob Yoer, breathes throughout the spirit of divine grace, which accords with the evidence of my noble mother, who never tires of her praises of her father's deep and devoted spiritual character. He counseled his children to read the Bible on their knees. They were both Charlestonians by birth and members of the First Baptist Church of that city. Their remains are lying in the yard of that church.

Elizabeth married Tristram Tupper Sr., son of Dr. James Tupper and Deborah Allen, on 3 Dec 1816 in Charleston, Charleston, SC.1 2 (Tristram Tupper Sr. was born on 15 Oct 1789 in Dresden, Lincoln, ME,1 7 8 16 17 18 died on 20 May 1865 in Charleston, Charleston, SC 1 7 16 17 and was buried in Charleston: First Baptist Churchyard, Charleston, Charleston, SC 16 17.)
