Note:

I can't locate evidence of Elizabeth's death. A few researchers on Ancestry have recorded her death as being in 1865. The only death listed for an Elizabeth Low/e in the New South Wales BDM is a different Elizabeth. This Elizabeth was 21 at the time of death when cross referenced with Trove records.

The majority of researchers have listed her death as being 1863 in Victoria. There is only one Eliza Lowe listed for that year, but she was a 1 year old.

There is an Elizabeth Low death record for 1853 at Camperdown, Newtown, New South Wales. The age of her death matches Elizabeth's year of birth. This could possibly be the right match
