Elizabeth Erskine was born in Northern Ireland, about 1758. She married Samuel Bushfield in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, in 1777. Elizabeth and Samuel's first 3 children were born in Ireland: John - 1778; Margaret - 1780; and Elizabeth - about 1781.

Sometime between 1782 and 1788, Elizabeth and Samuel came to this country with their three children, Elizabeth's mother (Margaret Crumley Erskine), and Elizabeth's brother (John Erskine). The infant daughter (Elizabeth) died during the voyage and was buried in the Atlantic Ocean.

John Erskine and his mother settled in Chester county, PA. Elizabeth and Samuel settled in Washington county, PA, about 3 miles south of West Alexander. Here they raised 7 children (John, Margaret, a 2nd "Elizabeth", Jane, Rebecca, Ann, and Mary).

Elizabeth Erskine Bushfield died in 1853 at age 95 years.
