8. Elizabeth "Betsy" Pippin18 was born in January 1837 in Jackson County, Tennessee.3,6 She died after 1918 at the age of 81 in Texas.

There is definite confusion about the daughters of Henry. I not sure this one who married a Bullington is the daughter. Elizabeth "Hulda" Pippin Chaffin was listed as deceased in the settlement of her parents' estate as was Eliza Pippin, unmarried, no issue. There is always the possibility the Elizabeth Chaffin Bullington had a second marriage to a Chaffin.

Elizabeth "Betsy" Pippin and Joseph Bullington were married in March 1858. Joseph Bullington was born in 1838 in Jackson County, Tennessee. He died in November 1884 at the age of 46 in Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee.
