Her name was Elizabeth E. Rainey Pipkin. She married John C. Cox on May 3, 1853 in Marshall Co., Mississippi. Her name was shown as Elizabeth Rainey on the marriage record. It appears that her last name was left off of the record. Elizabeth & John had 4 known children together. John C. Cox died during the Civil War. His death date & burial place are unknown.

After the death of John C. Cox, Elizabeth married Jacob E. Shoffner on July 15, 1863 in Marshall Co., Mississippi. Jacob Shoffner was still living & listed with Elizabeth when the 1880 Texas Census was taken in Titus Co., Texas. His death date & burial are unknown.

All of Elizabeth's children show her maiden name as "Pipkins" or "Pipkin" on their death certificates. Elizabeth was listed as "Elizabeth E. Pipkin" on the 1850 MS Census, Marshall Co., Southern Division. She was living in the household of Phillip & Ursula Pipkin. Elizabeth's mother's maiden name was Ursula Rainey.

There is some uncertainty about Elizabeth's maiden name. Although all of her children show her maiden name as Pipkin or Pipkins on their death certificates, some researchers believe her maiden name was Rainey and it was not a middle name. Elizabeth's mother Ursula Rainey married Phillip Pipkin on July 4, 1836 in Marshall Co., MS. If Elizabeth's birth date is correct on the headstone, December 28, 1834, then she was born before their marriage. However, there has been no marriage record found so far for Ursula Rainey prior to 1836.

Research indicates that Ursula's maiden name was Rainey and that she was the daughter of David Lemuel Rainey & Nancy Davis. It's possible that Elizabeth's year of birth is incorrect on the headstone and that her middle name was Rainey from her mother. It's also possible she was illegitimate. It's also possible that she was a Rainey by birth because her mother was previously married and Elizabeth adopted the Pipkin surname when her mother married Phillip Pipkin.

Unless further proof is discovered to show otherwise, the death certificates of her children showing the Pipkin surname as Elizabeth's maiden name appear to be the best source for her maiden name.
