Elsa once owned the VonRoenn Windmill. She was in love with Jackson Lucas and often wrote messages to him in prison, which were carried by Pidge, a messenger pigeon. When she became ill, she made her daughter Elsita swear that she would never tell Jackson that she was dead. So Elsita would write the messages to Jackson in her mother's name, unaware that Lefty Lem was writing on Jackson's behalf. She appears in "Pigeon".
