Eleanor Barnard Stevens was born in Pittston, Maine, USA on 30 August 1849. She was the daughter of Caleb Stevens, a grocer, and Julia Clapp. She had four known siblings, including her younger sister Caroline (later Mrs Frederic Danforth).

Eleanor never married and spent much of her life in Randolph, Maine, caring for her widowed mother Julia (1825-1915) before relocating to Boston. 

Miss Stevens was travelling aboard the Carpathia with her niece Eleanor Danforth and two others, bound for a vacation in the Mediterranean. Following their experiences, the quartet disembarked at New York, deciding not to continue onward with their journey to the Mediterranean.

Eleanor remained a resident of Boston where she was heavily involved in numerous civic and charity organisations. She died on 30 April 1935 and was buried in Maple Grove Cemetery in her native Randolph, Maine.
