  • ID: I8994
  • _UID: E1FA6906C49D43DB90CC9FA47CABD4B71A54
  • Name: Elizabeth JOLLIFF
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: 1 JAN 1797 in Fayette Co, Ky
  • Death: 18 AUG 1884 in Irvington, Washington Co, IL
  • Burial: Grand Point Cem Near Their Farm
  • Note:

    A descendant says she was born Jan 1, 1797, Fayette Co., Ky. (so her birthdate and anniversary were the same day). Her tombstone says 1793, but she would have been 50 years old when her youngest child, Mary Caroline, was born in 1843, so maybe the 1797 date is correct.

    They moved to Illinois in 1830, being the last of the Jolliff children to leave Kentucky. John erected a horse mill there; he also built the first grist mill in that part of the country. They were members of the Grand Point Baptist Church (right by his mill) which was mostly made up of Faulkners & Jolliffs. He died in 1851 (age 60); she died 1884 in Irvington, Washinton Co, IL (age 91; outliving her 7 brothers & sisters and 9 of her 13 children).
    Near Irvington, Ill. (south of Centralia) near what was known as the Grand Point Baptist Church is the "Faulkner Cemetery". Some of the Jolliffs are buried there. Elizabeth & John are buried there and all of their 13 children except one, Mrs. Meg Taylor. The churchyard was part of the old Faulkner farm where John and Elizabeth Faulkner lived and died.

    Tombstone:
    Elizabeth
    wife of John Faulkner
    Born 1793
    died Aug 18, 1884
    aged 91 years
