Elizabeth Smith married Rev. Sam'l S. Branch as his third wife, the first two wives having died young, with one child each. Samuel and Elizabeth had eight children including a set of twin boys. The Branch and Smith families were pioneer settlers of Meigs County Ohio where Sam'l and Elizabeth married.

In 1850 they moved west to be pioneers in the new state of Illinois where they lived out their lives. Several years after her husband died, the aged Elizabeth came to live with her son Joseph Branch and family in Minnesota, where she died at age 86.
