Elizabeth Mackey Twitty Ridgeway
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1834
White County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Nov., 1859
Mount Vernon
Jefferson County
Illinois, USA

The second of five (or six) daughters of Shuby Twitty, she moved to Illinois with her mother and grandmother, Sarah Mackey Twitty, in 1837.

She married James R. Ridgeway on Mar. 2, 1856 in Jefferson Co. IL. After that he disappears from records. We have no record of children. She seems to have been living with sister Sarah Ballard in Mt. Vernon when she died. There is record of her death but not where she is buried.

Her burial is probably in one of the vandalized graves in the Mt. Vernon cemeteries (possibly Oakwood or South Hickory Hill). Her sister Nancy is buried in West Salem. The cemetery rosters do not list her.
