Elizabeth's parentage is unknown.

She married Laurence Witman. They had three sons: Francis Joseph in 1814, John in 1819 and William in 1823. There was another child whose name has not survived.

On Aug. 16, 1817, Elizabeth migrated with her husband and two children on the ship "Xenophon" through the Port of Philadelphia.

For many years, Elizabeth lived with her husband in Tinicum Twp., Bucks Co. At some point she travelled to Berks Co. to live with her oldest son after he moved there about 1852.

Her sons were enumerated three times in a list of poor children whose educational fees had to be paid by Bucks Co.

Elizabeth had 17 grandchildren and 336 known additional descendants as of late 2007.
