- Died: After 1840 4
The fact Elizabeth married in 1796 suggests her date of birth was closer to 1780.
Noted events in her life were:
1. Deed: 1807, Rockingham County, North Carolina. 2
Deed No. 1235, Dated 6 Apr 1807, Bk M:265
Elizabeth Scott Lephew of Rockingham County sold 40 acres known as Lot No. 7 of the agreed upon division of the land of Stephen Lephew, Dec'd, to John Pierce of Rockingham County for $16. Witnessed by Alex Sneed and Zack Strong.
[Although Lot No. 7 passed to Elizabeth, the widow of Stephen Lephew, note that daughter Elizabeth, who married William Scott in 1796, appears to have been the one who sold this property. Might that mean she was somehow the successor to her mother's interest and that her mother had by then died? Alternatively, she may just have used the name Elizabeth Scott Lephew instead of Elizabeth Lephew Scott to effect a sale even though she was not the legal owner. It seems unlikely that Elizabeth, widow of Stephen Lephew, was herself named Scott before her marriage.]
