|Death: ||May 15, 1855|
Elizabeth is my 2nd great, grandmother. Little is known about her history but I am happy to share what I have found out about her. At this time I do not know who her parents were. In the US 1850 census in Bokes Creek Twp, Logan Co.,Ohio it gave her birth place as Virginia and born about 1790.
My great, grandfather, Richard Andrew Law, was born 2 Apr 1832 in Mercer County, Pennsylvania. He is listed with Elizabeth Clarkson in the 1850 Census as 18 years old born Pennsylvania.
In his obituary it stated that he moved with his parents (his mother and a step-father) to Logan County, Ohio in 1836. He was a small child at that time An uncle told me that Richard Andrew Law never knew much about his real father. Evidently he died or possibly divorced Elizabeth before 1835. Elizabeth (Betsy Baker) Law remarried to Richard Clarkson in Mercer County, Penn. about 1835 according to a statement made by Richard Clarkson in divorce papers November 1852 in Logan County, Ohio. She was known as Betsy Baker at that time in Mercer County (perhaps taking her former husbands name). An old piece of paper said there were 11 children by Baker and one child by Law. She had no children born by Richard Clarkson.
She died in 1855 in Logan County,Ohio and is buried there, "Elizabeth Clarkson, wife of R. (name of Richard not spelled out).
