Elizabeth (nee Brigham) Rooney.
Elizabeth was 15 when the cave was discovered. She was picking apples. She remembered picking 15 bushels when the men working in the quarry set off a routine blast and uncovered the entrance to the cave. She had to wait to see it though because they wanted to clear the rubble and make it safe first.
