Death: 1851

Elizabeth was born in 1772 In Chester County, South Carolina. When she was about three years old and her sister, Dorcus, about one, their father left home to serve with the South Carolina forces during the Revolutionary War. Her father returned after the war and a brother, Mason, was born in 1779 and four more siblings, John, Susannah, Winifred and Jane, were born. Elizabeth was about seventeen when she married THOMAS COCKRELL. They were still in Chester County when their only daughter, Lear Cealia, was born. By 1801, they had moved across the county line into Fairfield County where sons, Moses. James, Sanford and Charles S., were born. Their daughter, Lear Cealia, married James Collie in 1808 and grandchildren began arriving. It was a time of great migration through out the fledging country. As word of land opening up for settltment reached communities, extended families and neighbors formed wagon trains and set out. Elizabeth and Thomas, traveled with her parents and other Hueys across the Mississippi River reaching Ouachita Parish, Louisiana in 1812. The same year, their daughter and son-in-law went with his Collie parents across the Tennessee River to settle in Lincoln County, Tennessee. The sons of Elizabeth and Thomas married and grandchildren arrived. Over thirty years later, their daughter and her Collie family joined them in Lousiana. Sometime after the daughter arrived, Thomas died and Elizabeth made a legal settlement of his estate with her adult children before remarrying. The documents are a matter of record in the Ouachita Parish Courthouse. Elizabeth was in declining years and considering marriage to a widowed neighbor, John Dickerson, Sr.
