Birth: 1820
Mount Vernon

Death: unknown
Mount Vernon
Posey County

Elizabeth was the daughter of Thomas and Rachel (Jones) Givens of Black Township, Posey County, Indiana. She was born around 1820 on the family farm that her parents established north of the town of Mount Vernon. On November 27, 1836 she married Ambrose Dudley Cash, a son of the Reverend Jeremiah Cash, a well-known Reglar Baptist minister. Elizabeth's older sister Julia had married Job Cash, another son of the minister. Twin girls, Rachel A. and Sarah W. were born to the couple in 1839. By 1850 the girls were orphaned and living in Marrs Township with their grandmother, Rachel Givens. It is assumed that both Elizabeth and Ambrose had died sometime in the late 1840s, but no documentation has been discovered to clarify the circumstances of the girls being placed in their grandmother's supervision. Where Elizabeth and Ambrose are interred has not been determined, but their gravesites most likely are located in the Templeton Graveyard where so many of the Givens family members are buried. Presumably, Sarah and Rachel accompanied their grandmother Rachel Givens and other members of the Givens families on the journey overland to California in 1853. Several members of the party never successfully completed the trek, including their grandmother. However, the girls did arrive safely and records indicate that they married gold miners in the Sacramento valley and lived with their families in the same vacinity as Jeremiah Cash Givens, an uncle.
