Iwould give up my eye teeth for that information. If I recall correctly, we have a guess who her grandfather is, but not her father. That is if we are guessing correctly. There is oral and written tradition that she may have been Elizabeth Bard. Also that she her last name was Smith, however there is not documentation to support ether of these. It is believed that she was confused at one time with her daughter-in-law Rebecca Ann Smith or was one of countless women of that time that were not taken into consideration and her personal history is lost. There is also tradiion that she was Native American woman who was called Elizabeth Barth. Unfortunately, I cannot support anything more than what we have found documented.
