Biography

Elizabeth was born about 1714. She passed away about 1794.

Some researchers show her as Elizabeth E. and others show her as Elizabeth Ann. Documentation is needed. Some accounts list her as Elizabeth Parsons or Piersons.

Research needs to be done on the following statement:

Most researchers have concluded her name was Elizabeth Persons and I think that is right because she is shown in her father's will as a single girl and then as a witness to a document containing the names of her Persons family but signs as Elizabeth as she was by then married to John Langston (Elizabeth is on a deed with him as his wife, so we know he had a second wife named Elizabeth.. almost certainly Persons as explained above. [http://www.megjohn.info/genealogy/uncleged/com527.html

Elizabeth Persons married John Jesse Langston III about 1743 probably in Granville County, North Carolina. John's first wife was Mary Ann Agnes Mangum. Her brother was William Mangum. He married Mary Persons. She was the sister of Elizabeth Persons whose profile is linked below. Could these Persons be cousins from the same clan? The two Elizabeth Persons don't have matching birth dates and places, but could the birth records of one of them be in error so they might be the same Elizabeth Persons?

There's some disagreement about the children of Elizabeth and John and the children of John and his first wife so each child needs to be documented.

Potential list of Elizabeth and John's children:

Samuel Langston b. ca 1740??? [Mentioned in father's will]
Elizabeth Spann b. ca 1742 [Mentioned in father's will]
Rebekah "Becka" Williams b. ca 1746 [Mentioned in father's will]
Jesse Langston b. ca 1747 [Mentioned in father's will]
Sarah "Sally" Langston b. ca 1749 [Mentioned in father's will]
Mary "Molly" Langston b. ca 1753 [Mentioned in father's will]
Martha Langston b. ca 1755
Frances Langston b. ca 1759 [Mentioned in father's will]

Birth dates, especially of John, Jochonias, and Samuel need primary source documentation.

If we have access to her father's will, why don't we have his name?

Great, Michelle. That means we're in agreement. If you could change her maiden name to Persons we can move forward with the merge. I tried to do the merge, but there were complications because of the surname. :) There was no option for me to change the name to Persons.
