  • The family name of people that seem to be Elizabeth's parents appears in wills as Person.  Some genealogies spell the name Parsons.  John T. Palmer had her place of death as Greenville, Granville, North Carolina.  This is not correct, since Greenville is in Pitt County.  Thus it is not clear whether this person meant to say Greenville city (with Pitt County) or Granville County.  He has the death place for Eliabeth's husband as Greenville County, South Carolina in 1790, and hers as possibly Granville County, North Carolina.,  Perhaps he meant Greenville, Greenville County, SOUTH Carolina for Elizabeth?  Another source says Greenville County, South Carolina, like her husband, so I am taking this option.  Since John had the town as Greenville, I am interpreting this to indicate that he meant Greenville, Greenville, South Carolina.  John T. Palmer, PhD, includes the following information from sources:  in 1750 John Langston and son Absalom were on a tax list of William Person.  Deed Book F, pg 313 of Granville Co, NC notes Joseph Langston to Thomas, Esq for 30 pounds, 170 acres Source: Mary Poole Lasseter  In unrecorded Wills: Elizabeth Langston is witness to Will of Mary Person Date of Will 20 May 1761 Date of probate Aug 1761  Deed Book 1 pg 355 4 Feb 1767 John Langston to John Thompson, both of Bute Co for 75 pounds current money for 300 acres in Bute co adj Bennit.
