15. Elizabeth GENTRY was born on 14 October 1731 in Hanover County, Virginia.5 She died on 28 July 1820 at the age of 88 in Clark County, Kentucky.5

Elizabeth's birth is seen as both Aug 14 and Oct 14, 1731.

Elizabeth GENTRY and Nathaniel HAGGARD were married about 1751 in Virginia.5 Nathaniel HAGGARD, son of James HAGGARD, was born on 21 November 1723 in Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, Virginia.4 He died on 21 August 1806 at the age of 82 in Winchester, Clark County, Kentucky.3

Nathaniel is said to have first been married to Mary Hazelrigg.

Nathaniel lived in Charlottesville, Albemarle Co VA during the Revolution and was a delegate to the Virginia House of Burgesses from Albemarle when he signed the "Virginia Declaration of Independence" on 21 Apr 1779. Thomas Jefferson was elected Governor of Virginia the same year.

Elizabeth and Nathaniel moved to Albemarle County and lived for a time there on land adjoining Jesse Gentry (son of Robert). They sold this land in 1788(19) and bought land the same year in Lincoln County, Kentucky(20), from part of which Clark County was formed in 1790.


Nathaniel died in 1806 leaving a will which left everything to his widow Elizabeth. On her death in 1820, the estate passed to all of their children except Martin who had been killed by Indians at an earlier date.
