Elizabeth Sullivan's date of birth is best determined by her age on the 1850 census, where she was listed as 19 years old, living with her parents, Ezekiel and Margaret Sullivan. Ezekiel was already in Jackson Co., Indiana, in 1830. The record of his marriage to his first wife, Margaret Sullivan, has not come to light, although it would have been sometime in the late 1820s.

Elizabeth was married three times:

1. Thomas Elkins
Jan. 25, 1857, Brown Co., Indiana
Thomas was considerably older than Elizabeth, with a large family by his previous marriage. They had one son, William Elkins (1858-1926.) Thomas died about 1859.

2. Isaac Bush
No date available for this union, and little known about Isaac Bush. They had one child, Cecila Jane Bush (1865-1929.) Elizabeth was enumerated on the 1870 census in Brown Co., with son William Elkins, 12, and "Jane Elkins," age 3.

3. Andrew Mobley
July 1, 1875, Brown Co., Indiana
Elizabeth was enumerated with Andrew Mobley on the 1880 census, with her son William Elkins, age 22, in the household, as well as William's young wife, Rhoda (Mobley) Elkins, daughter of Andrew; their infant daughter, Emma; and "Seala J. Bush," age 13, step-daughter to Andrew Mobley.

Andrew Mobley apparently died in Brown Co. after 1880. In 1900, Elizabeth Mobley was enumerated on the census, residing in Bartholomew Co. with her daughter, Celia Jane (Bush) Richards. Her civil death record confirms her parents as Ezekiel Sullivan and ____ Shipley, and her burial at Mt. Healthy.

Elizabeth's grave is not marked.
