Elizabeth's husband, Chartist writer John La Mont, died of consumption in Islington, London in 1844.
Note: Scheckner, following Kovalev, misattributes her poems to a ‘Eugene La Mont’, alias John La Mont who, as we have seen, was in fact Elizabeth’s husband. Chartist scholarship is much indebted to Margaret Loose for sorting out the misinformation about ‘Eugene’and recovering Elizabeth as an individual, a Chartist and a poet. Use Kovalev, Schnecker sources with caution.
