Eloped at the age of 16 to marry first husband. After 11 children he died, with the youngest child only 18 months old. She remained a widow for about ten years and then married a widower with nine children. Between them they had 20 children, although by this time several were adults, married and/or out on their own. She was very well known throughout the region as someone who was always ready, regardless of weather or time of day or night to go the aid of the sick or anyone else in need, or to attend women in labor. She also hosted social events for young people and others in her home, and she was very active in her local church. She lived to an advanced age and enjoyed the company of four generations of descendants. She died at the "Bush Inn" which had been her home since age 16.
