Elizabeth was the likely daughter to William and Susan Edwards who resided in Neshoba Co, Mississippi, according to the 1860 US Census. She would marry Robert Farish a year later. To this union were born three daughters and four sons. One daughter is unknown and probably died in infancy. Elizabeth and Robert came to Washington Co about 1873; and after a few years moved from a farm east of Fayetteville to the Stoney Point area northwest of Johnson. She remained on this farm until her death. Known children were William George Farish, who was probably named after her father and father-in-law; James Edward Farish whose death record states that his mother's maiden name was Edwards; Gustavus Eugene 'Gene' Farish; daughters Ida and Lela who died in 1902 from consumption (TB); Robert Farish, Jr; and the unknown daughter. Sever children were numbered in the obituary for Elizabeth's husband, Robert Farish, Sr.
