"Elizabeth Ann Coleman, born November 12, 1796, was married September 29, 1813, at Woodlawn, Halifax County, VA, to Charles Baskerville, 1788-1834, son of William and Mary Eaton Baskervill of Lombardy Grove, Mecklenburg County.

Elizabeth, barely 15 at the time of her marriage, was given a number of expensive gifts for her wedding, including a "Colonial silver service" and a "beautiful necklace, brooch and earrings of pearls and diamonds." She and Charles, a planter and merchant, lived at Lombardy Grove, their life described as "smooth and eventless." They had four children: William Baskerville (1816-1895), of Buena Vista, Mecklenburg County; Henry E. C. Baskerville (1817- 1900) of Richmond; Mary Ann Elizabeth Baskerville (1819-1873) wife of Richard Venable Watkins of Mayo, Halifax County; and Charles Baskerville (1821-1890) of Mississippi.

Elizabeth Coleman Baskerville died in 1821, soon after the birth of her fourth child, at age 24, and is buried at Lombardy Grove".
