Married John Hauser.

An article, #305, from The Heritage of Surry County, NC, Vol. I -1983, submitted by Mrs. Lola H. Hauser relates an interesting story. John Hauser was the third child of Adam Hauser Sr and his wife Margaret Binkley. Adam lived on 350 acres of land on the Yadkin River that had been formerly owned by Hezekiah Wright (Giery Reit in Moravian record), brother to Gideon Wright. In 1780, Hezekiah was accused of being a Tory, severely and mercilessly beaten and shot as he stood in the doorway of his house.

My records show that on 24 Sep 1800, the sons of Hezekiah Wright, Gideon & Durlin, then living in Madison Co, KY, sold to George Hauser for $100, 350 acres on the south side of the Yadin River below the Yellowbank Ford, and adjacent Thomas Poindexter's line, among others. The tract had been granted to them as heirs of Hezekiah Wright on 5 Dec 1798. On 13 Dec 1802, George Hauser sold the same tract to Adam Hauser.

Elizabeth is buried Hauser-Sawyers Cemetery, Shoals, Surry Co, NC

John married a second time, 26 Jul 1866, Stokes Co NC to Maria Susanna Kreeger.
