Elizabeth Cumming was the daughter of General*
William Cumming Cu9 of Liberty and Sarah
Coppage Co9 who died in 1765.
Elizabeth Cumming Cu8 was born in 1752, presumably in Liberty, Maryland, died March 29, 1836, in Anchorage, Kentucky.
Married first Nicholas Hobbs Ho8
second John? Campbell
Elizabeth Cumming and Nicholas Hobbs had issue:
|It is said that, when Samuel Lawrence La7 brought his family across the mountains from Maryland to Kentucky, Elizabeth Cummings Hobbs Cu8 his wife's mother, rode on horseback, while her daughter Sarah Lawrence Ho7 rode in the carriage driven by the slave, Simon. This was due to the fact that Mrs. Lawrence, either had a new born infant, or was about to have one. They arrived in May, 1799. The Bible gives the birth of her 5th child, Elias Lawrence as 1799 on August 1. As the 4th chl1d Elbannon died on September 12, 1798, it is probably explained as before the coming child's birth.||After the death of Nicholas Hobbs Ho8, her first husband, Elizabeth
Cumming married - Campbell, and became known to her descendants as
Grandmother Carnpbell. Mrs. Milton Smith, Sr., the wife of the President
of the L & N owned a miniature of her, which was copied by a photographer.
Mrs. George Nicholas Ni3-5 has one of the copies.
Elizabeth Cumming Hobbs is buried in the yard of the Hobbs Memorial
Chapel at Anchorage, Kentucky.
|This Chapel is the same chapel, where Charles Booth Parsons (6.15)
was an early minister and explains the name “Hobbs" used for his son, Edward
Young Hobbs Parsons.
The Bible account of Elizabeth Cumming Hobbs Campbell' s death is as follows:
"Elizabeth Campbell died on Tuesday evening the 29th of March, 1836 in her 85th year" ¬
There is a printed chart of the William Cumrnings - Sarah Coppage descendents with the records owned by Mrs. Nicholas Ni3-5.
* Other sources say he was only a private, but there was a Col. William
Cumming living in Maryland at this time.
