Elizabeth was born about 1814. She passed away in 1851.

In the "History of Pettis County, Missouri"[1], published in 1882, is a profile of John Rector, a son of Henry Rector, on page 943. There is also a profile of Henry Rector. Under the section of "History of Cedar Township" is the profile of John E. Rector:

"The gentleman whose name appears at the head of this sketch is a merchant of Georgetown, and was born in Pettis County, Mo., Dec. 5, 1838, and educated in the common schools of the county. In April, 1872, he was married to Miss Mary B. Edwards, whose father was a merchant. Four children were born, three of whom are living. Mr. John. E. Rector is a leading member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. He commenced merchandising about 1868, in Georgetown, where he continues business. His father is one of the early pioneer settlers of Georgetown. Henry Rector, the father of John E., was born Nov. 18, 1809, in the State of Kentucky, and was the son of Enoch Rector, a native of Virginia. Henry Rector came to Missouri in 1819, and settled in Howard County, but finally moved to the spot, near where Georgetown now stands, in 1833, before the town was laid off, and it was then called Saline County. He was married to Miss Lee Ann Allen, in 1824, and seven children were the fruits of this union, viz: Chas J., Nimrod, William, Bethel E., Harriet A., Elizabeth and John. His first wife died March 15, 1851, and he married the second time Miss Mary A. Reany, Nov. 11, 1851. She was born Sept. 29, 1823. The following children are the offspring of the latter marriage: Martha J., Sarah M., George H., Ruth, Jaily, Emma, William M., and Millard J. In religion, Mr. Henry Rector is a member of the M.E. Church, South."
