Rebecca was the daughter of Charles Sr. and Rebekah Hamilton Thrift. She married Gustavus 27 Jan 1785.

Gus and Rebecca had ten children. All are either listed here or linked.

Hamilton Elgin, born 2 Oct 1786, married Rebecca H. Thrift 26 Jan 1819 in Loudoun County, Virginia. They had at least seven children. Hamilton died before 1850 as he is not on that census.

Gustavus Elgin Jr, born 18 Oct 1790, married Elizabeth Cross 11 Nov 1830. He died 21 Jul 1860. Burial unknown. His wife Elizabeth is buried in Union Cemetery, Leesburg.

William Elgin, born 11 May 1794. William's whereabouts were unknown when his father wrote his will in 1826. No other information is known.

Rebecca died at Kingdom Farm. I have added her memorial here because she and Gus lived here until their deaths.
