When Elizabeth was about three years old, her parents left White County, Indiana and migrated by river boat or barge down the Ohio and Tennessee rivers to Athens, Limestone County, Alabama. She was educated in the public schools there.

Elizabeth Oglesby Redus Hine and her two sisters, Sarah Chaffin Redus Tanner and Mary Louise Redus Crawford, daughters of Aaron Redus and Elizabeth Oglesby Redus were visiting each other in Athens, Alabama in 1892 and decided to have their picture taken together.

The Athens newspaper covering the event stated, "There is not one of them that would not pass for over 50 or 60 by most any judge. Each and every one of them still carries with them traces of beauty that made them the belles of their young days. The eldest, Mrs. Bettie (Elizabeth) Hine, without disparaging the good looks of either of the others, is we believe the youngest and handsomest of the three. Yet they are all above average in good looks, and they are neither so old that they can't appreciate the compliment of being called handsome. They are all natives of Limestone County where they were reared and where two of them have continuously resided all of these years. Seventy-three, seventy-four and seventy-five are their ages."

A niece called her Aunt Bettie quiet and dignified.
