Elizabeth's aunt Jane (Jennie) McCall was Benedict Bristol's first wife.
Elizabeth and Benedict had four sons in the CSA: John, William (a Captain), Elam (killed at Whitehall), and Lambert, who ran away from home to join the Confederacy at age 14. Lambert was elected Captain at the age of sixteen, the youngest in the Confederacy. Lambert fought at Gettysburg for the famous Bethel regiment as a captain at the age of 17 years and 5 months. He died exactly sixty-six years after the final day of the Battle of Gettysburg.
Son William H. ("Billy") moved to Texas and lived to be 102 years old. His wife, J. Elvira Johnson, 1840-1908, is buried at Pecan Grove Cemetery in McKinney TX, a very old cemetery in North Texas where many Civil War veterans are buried. At the age of 95, Billy visited his nephew in Rutherford College NC, and his great nephew, John Leith Holloway, in Asheville NC. He so impressed John Leith Holloway, Jr., only five when he met his great, great uncle, that he wrote an 8th Grade Paper about him for a class in 1942.
Daughter Emma L. Bristol married Robert Sudderth, a son of Martha Eveline Kincaid, eldest child of William Winfield Kincaid.
