5th Generation:

Elizabeth Peeler Beck was born on April 8, 1819 in Wayne (now Union) County, Indiana 2. She died on December 25, 1865 in Jefferson Twp., Boone Co., Indiana 2,3. She is buried in the Taylor Cemetery, Jefferson Twp., Boone Co., Indiana.
Father: John Beck
Mother: Judith Chinault

She was named after her paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Peeler. Elizabeth was raised as a Baptist and lived with her parents in Union County, Indiana, where they were moderately successful farmers. In 1838 she was married to William Taylor, who lived in Boone County, Indiana. After the marriage, Elizabeth began living with her husband on their large farm in Jefferson Township, Boone County, Indiana, near the small village of Hazelrigg. Elizabeth had seven children: John, James, William, Abner, Francis, Mary and Martha.

Although Elizabeth was apparently raised as a Baptist, her husband and in-laws were Presbyterians and she may or may not have converted to that faith. In political matters, Elizabeth's husband was a Democrat up until the Civil War, afterwards he became an Independent and supported the Union side in the conflict. It can be assumed that Elizabeth may have held the same ideals. Their home was built in 1847 on their farm which it is said to have comprised 640 acres and that they were the wealthiest farmers in that county. Elizabeth died at her home on December 25, 1865, at the age of 46. She was afterwards buried in the family cemetery (Taylor Cemetery) just outside of Hazelrigg, Indiana. Her husband afterwards remarried to Eliza Caldwell in 1875 and he died in 1890.

Elizabeth married William Riley Taylor on November 15, 1838 in Union Co., Indiana 1.
