Elizabeth was a strait-laced, German Baptist Brethren farm girl who married a man who had been raised Catholic and who had served in the Civil War. She lived out her life in Clay Township, Carroll County, Indiana, a place that is among the best "corn country" in the U.S.A.

She and her Catholic husband were married for fifty years and seven months, until his death, and they argued about religion until the day that he died. In private, their argument must have ceased: Their marriage produced nine children, with the first child born 11 months after they married and the ninth child born when Elizabeth was 38.

Always, Elizabeth's attitudes were German Baptist, and her husband's attitudes were Roman Catholic. One of their children told the story about a time when several of their sons were in the attic of their house playing cards. Elizabeth was scandalized that her sons were playing cards, and she complained to her husband that their sons were "sinning." Her husband replied, "But they're doing it quietly."

Siblings: David, George, Andrew, Robert, John, Noah, Sarah, Samuel, Isaac, Daniel, Reuben, Jennie.

RELIGION: German Baptist Brethren.

1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY: Page 81. Pictured with her husband and children. Please note that the book lists incorrect birth information for Elizabeth. The date of birth that the book lists for Elizabeth is, instead, the date of birth for Elizabeth's mother. The book also has the year of birth wrong for Elizabeth's husband.

Below are the descendants of Elizabeth and her husband, through their great-great grandchildren, with an asterisk indicating DNA-proven. (By early 2018, seven of her nine children have been DNA-proven -- Sarah Catherine, Rosa Ellen, George, William, James, Dora, and Challence. One has no DNA matches to date -- Mary Elizabeth. One had no known descendants -- Theodore.) Nine children; 32 known grandchildren; 78 known great-grandchildren; 125 known great-great-grandchildren. Of those descendants, one great-grandchild was found as a result of autosomal DNA tests (along with her children), and one great-great-grandchild was found as a result of autosomal DNA testing.
