Elizabeth married my ancestor William Howard. They purchased Ocracoke Island in 1759. Her mother's first name was Susannah. She had a brother named Harris. Harris lived in Craven Co. NC and moved to Georgia with his wife. Do not know if they had any children or not.
I do not know Elizabeth's father's name. I am trying to find out. Some have said she is the daughter or granddaughter of John Yeoman, governor of Barbados and the Carolinas. I believe that she passed away in the 1760's as William remarried and had 3 more children by another.
Elizabeth had 3 children. Her first son was George Howard, my ancestor, her second was William and her third child was Susannah. Whom I assume was named after her mother or Blackbeard's sister. I guess it is possible that her father could have been named George Yeoman.
If anyone has any info on her I would appreciate it if you would share it with me. She and William were married in the early 1700's. I have been told that her children were grown when she and William purchased Ocracoke.
