Elizabeth Poston was born to Richard and Ann Campbell Poston in Virginia. She came to Indiana with her husband and children about 1820. She is buried with her husband and several of their children in Connersville's City Cemetery. Her uncle, William Campbell, is known as the hero of the battle of King's Mountain, considered to me the turning point of the Revolutionary War. Wm. Campbell was married to Elizabeth Henry, sister of Patrick Henry.
