Elizabeth Prince Sarvis
Birth: 1830
Horry County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Mar. 6, 1900
Horry County
South Carolina, USA

Elizabeth Prince Sarvis was born in 1830 in Horry County, South Carolina, the daughter of Nicolas and Sarah Prince. She had six siblings. Elizabeth married John Reynolds Sarvis, and they had eleven children: Thomas Lester B. Sarvis, George Marsden Sarvis, Edward "Ned" C. Sarvis, Helan Sarvis King, Sharlotte Ada Sarvis Neely, Rhoda Mary Elizabeth Sarvis Cartrette, Elmmon A. Sarvis (killed in a sawmill fire), Bowden Sarvis (killed in a sawmill fire), Doctor "Dock" Joseph Sarvis, James S. Norton Sarvis, and William Scarborough Sarvis (died during the Civil War in 1862, possibly in a northern prison). Her husband and two of her sons were Confederate veterans. Elizabeth died about age 70 on March 6, 1900 in Horry County and is probably buried in an unmarked grave in the cemetery of Pleasant Meadow Baptist Church in Horry County on land donated by the Sarvis family.

Elizabeth was of French Huguenot and English descent. It was her great-great-great-grandfather Daniel Horry (part of the family for whom Horry County is named) who came from Charenton, Cher, France and great-great-great-grandmother Elizabeth Fanton Garnier Horry who came from Ile de Re, Charente-Maritime, France to South Carolina. Elizabeth Horry's ancestors (including her grandparents) were survivors of the 14-month-long Siege of La Rochelle in 1627-28 by the Catholic forces of King Louis XIII and Cardinal Richelieu. During the siege more than 80% of the predominately Protestant Huguenot population died of wounds, disease, and starvation.

Thanks so much to descendant Kay Evans and "Anonymous" for so much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. I hope one of her descendants will add her photo to this site.
