Elizabeth Henry was born in New Jersey about 1824. Her mother was Cecilia Henry but her father’s name is still unknown to us. She had a brother, Isaac, and sister, Rhoda. The Henry family moved to Savannah, Georgia, sometime around 1840 where all but Elizabeth spent the rest of their lives. Elizabeth married Reuben Shattuck Stoughton in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1842 and soon after moved to the tiny town of Micanopy in Florida. She is buried next to her son, Edward Henry Stoughton, who died in March 1857.
