Elizabeth was the daughter of Isaac and Anna (Haldeman) Krieble. She was born on 3 April 1844 in Pennsylvania, possibly in Worcester Township, Montgomery County. She was the tenth of thirteen children. Within the next few years, the family moved to Montville in Medina County, Ohio. By 1860, the family moved again, this time settling in Owen County, Indiana. Elizabeth had a relationship with a man named James McCoy, whether as a married couple or not is unknown. Elizabeth gave birth to her daughter Nancy on 16 April 1866. Ten months later, Elizabeth became the second wife of Michael Schiele.
