Birth: Dec. 6, 1809
Ohio, USA
Death: Jun. 18, 1881
Wells County
Indiana, USA

Second wife of Andrew M. Dragoo (1782-1865). They were married on Feburary 13, 1834 in Clinton County, Ohio. Elizabeth was the mother of seven children with Andrew including: Abigail, Ann, George, Daniel, Rosilla, William Jasper and Hugh Greer Dragoo and stepmother of ten other children from Andrew's first marriage to Mary Jane "Polly" Hardesty.

Please note: There is some incorrect information that has been on some family trees that links Elizabeth and Andrew's daughter, Rosella, to Virgil W. Earp. Unfortunately, that is not the same Rosella. Andrew and Elizabeth's daughter, Rosella, who was born in 1844 in Clinton County, Ohio married James R. Jones on September 8, 1864 in Delaware County, Indiana. She had four children with James - William G. born 1867, Otto E. born 1869, Martha E., born 1872 and Elizabeth J. born 1873. Rosella died in either Randolph County, Indiana or Blackford County between 1880 and 1900. (Some records indicate she died in 1888. The first wife of Virgil Earp was actually born about 1855 in France. Also, there are several documents to show that Andrew's daughter, Rauzilla, was married to James Jones and was the mother of the Jones children. They are all together on the census in 1880 and marriage and death certificates for the children confirm the names of their mother - Rauzilla "Rosella" (Dragoo) Jones.

Rauzilla and her husband, James R. Jones (1844-1903), are buried in Montpelier, Blackford, Indiana as is her son, William Greer Jones. One of Rauzilla's daughters, Elizabeth (Jones) Godfrey (1873-1949) is buried in Fairfield Cemetery in Greene County, Ohio. But "this" Rauzilla was definitely not married to Virgil Earp.
