In 1850 her husband built a house for her called Fairview, which still stands on Carters Creek Pike. The couple had six children. Claiborne died in 1863. Elizabeth died in 1884 and is buried in Mount Hope Cemetery, Franklin, Williamson County.

Elizabeth made her sampler at an unidentified school, but probably the same one attended by Frances Louisa Nolen (1836, TSS 013) and Roxana M’Gee (1839, TSS 027). Her cousin, Elizabeth Buford Fleming , also made a sampler about 1835 (TSS 211).
