American noted family, the third daughter of Amos Alcott and sister of Louisa May Alcott. A quiet young girl, she loved pets and her family and was a homebody. She became the model for Beth in "Little Women." At her father's wishes, she was named after Elizbeth Peabody, an educator and Bronson Alcott's assistant. But later, Mrs. Alcott, changed her child's name in the family Bible to Elizabeth Sewall Alcott.

In 1856, she contracted scarlet fever. Though she survived she died two years later, on March 14, 1858. That day, Louisa wrote in her journal: "My dear Beth died at three in the morning after two years of patient pain...Saturday she slept, and at midnight became unconscious, quietly breathing her life away till three; then, with one last look of her beautiful eyes, she was gone."
