Elizabeth Duncan was born in Rock Ridge County, Virginia, December 17, 1796. Her mother died when she was 12 years old; she took charge of the house and the youngest children. She performed her duties well, giving the children all the love and care of a mother, teaching them morals and manners and giving them religious training. Her father remarried some years later, and the new stepmother, upon coming into the household, said that she was surprised to see a girl so young exhibit such capability. On December 15, 1814, Thomas Hart married Miss Elizabeth Duncan of Blount County, Tennessee. Children: Lavinia Hart Matson (1816 - 1898) Mary Ann Hart Saye (1822 - 1895)
