Biography

Elizabeth was born about 1750. She passed away in 1815.
Her birth most likely took place in Lunenburg county, formed from Brunswick county in 1746. Halifax, formed in 1752, is also possible, given the uncertainty of 1750 as the year of birth. Pittsylvania was formed from Halifax in 1766.[1]
