More early period 'Liza thesis fodder:

“...Another chap was drilling a hole through a revolver handle, and singing “Little old Liza Jane,” while another was limping across the window sill in search of fresh air, to the agonizing tune of tramp–tramp–tramp!”

[The Ashland Union, “Brick” Pomeroy on Mosquitos, 25 October 1865, p.1]

“Music Hall.– The “Cure,” by Collins, was the principal feature at this place of amusement last night. Johnny Tuers, Sheppard, Wallace, Ward, and Foster, were on hand in “My Little Ole Liza Jane”–they can't be beat in that. Go to see them to-night. The “Cure” will be repeated.”

[Gold Hill (Nevada) Daily News, Evening News, 23 November, 1865, p.3]

“Arlington Hall…
Family Matinee Saturday at half-past two o'clock,…
First week of “Little Old 'Liza Jane.”

[Chicago Tribune, Variety Theatre, 29 April, 1867, p.4]
