Family trees have listed Levi Denny and Delilah Cummins as her parents. Most census records list Kentucky as Elizabeth's place of birth (one lists her born in North Carolina.)

********************************************
there is no stone for Elizabeth as of Sept 2014..here is the info from a volunteer photographer:

Despite burials as recent as 2010 and 2012 this cemetery is in terribly sad condition. A vast majority of the graves are unmarked now only identifiable by indentations in the ground or at best an undistinguished foot marker or base of a long gone head stone. The markers are just gone either having worked their way into the ground or removed. Many of the remaining markers are in disrepair any hopes of finding the graves of most of those interred will require a plot map. Unfortunately there is no contact information on the sign as which merely states "Noland Cemetery 1840."
