Elizabeth Dodgens Mullins
Elizabeth was born in DeKalb County, Georgia in the same year the Rosetta Stone was deciphered. She had her first child in Georgia in 1845 and her four subsequent children in Georgia as well. Her last child, Mahala Ann was to be her salvation. Her husband Miles Mullins died in Canoe, AL 27 Oct 1880. Elizabeth finally ended up living with her daughter, Mahala Ann Brown, during the latter years of her life. She is buried in the Muscogee Cemetery near her daughter. Her tombstone was one of the few left unvandalized in the area in 1995 and was a fine example of turn of the century stone cutting. It stated proudly that she was born in DeKalb County, Georgia. Today it looks like this:
In 1900 the census listed her as having had 6 children of which only 3 were still alive.
