Elizabeth was born in Mallow, co Cork.
Married 1820. Samuel Harrison (1) of Greybrook,(2) Co Cork. Elizabeth died at Queenstown, Cork. 'An Officer of the Long Parliament' shows the husband as Samuel Harris.
The date of 1864 for Elizabeth's death is drawn from the birth, marriage and death records in the Mallow Heritage Centre. Agnes Townsend  records in her diary - '1886 29 Oct Mrs Harrison died'. It is not clear whether this refers to Elizabeth.
