Elizabeth was born circa 1725. She lived until 1780.

She is mentioned, along with her siblings in the Find A Grave: Memorial #64313640 for her father, John Denson Jr (ca. 1695, Isle of Wight, Virginia -1753, Southampton, Virginia), as having married John Porter in 1743. Her mother is described as Alice Hollowell (ca. 1695-1766), who is named on a memorial at the Eastern State Hospital Cemetery, Williamsburg, Virginia: Find A Grave: Memorial #8001457, but this is an unconfirmed match.
