Birth: Dec. 31, 1772
Little Britain
Lancaster County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Feb. 9, 1849
Cross Creek
Washington County
Pennsylvania, USA

Born December 31, 1772. She was married to Henry McElroy (24 years her junior) her marriage proved unhappy and traditions recites that she always assigned her ill-luck to the following facts: She was married in the old "Stone House" in a room just at the foot of the stairs, and in order to make a more effective entrance to that room, they went down the hall and in through another room, and so many turns (so she claims) was bad luck. Her husband left her, and after the death of General Thomas Patterson's wife, she returned to the "Stone House" and kept house for her brother. She died February 9, 1849 and is buried in the old graveyard at Cross Creek Village.
