So many surnames for just one person, what's up with that?

+1 vote

Elizabeth Greer (Crumpler) Autry @ Greer-2167 is mentioned with Crumpler in position to be her maiden / surname / last name at birth. On her (one and only?!) husband's page (where this question is being placed), Crumpler relations are obscurely mentioned as significant, albiet mysterious, but definitely present. 

However, when one visits Elizabeth's page, her father is a Greer, and no mention of Crumpler is made.

Am I'm missing something? It would be helpful to know whether Elizabeth is attached to the correct family of origin, and what role Crumpler plays in her ancestry.

According to her father James Greer's will, she is listed as Elizabeth Beasley. In the book The Descendants of Aquilla Greer Sr. Her husband is listed as John Beasley and said they married abt. 1813. They had 1 daughter Nancy Beasley. This isn't supported by facts except for the last name in father'S will. She was not married to Autry. His wife was Elizabeth Crumpler daughter of Matthew Crumpler according to her obituary on her FindAGrave. I will remove Theophilus Autry as a spouse and all the children under her. I will note his and her page and correct her name. If I can find any Sources for husband I will add him. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

My guess would be married twice, but could be other circumstances born prior to Parents marriage, Step Father adopted her. I am sure there are more
