Eliza, A Blueblooded Southern Belle Who Became a Pioneer Woman:The tombstone reads simply "Eliza, wife of Adam Peck. Born March 12. 1792, Died July 23, 1874". The graveyard is beautiful, peaceful, quiet, empty of any living person on most days. Eliza's tombstone is found in the rolling hills of southwestern Kentucky. The tombstone in that Kentucky graveyard gives no hint of a blue-blooded southern belle born on a plantation in the High Santee of South Carolina, Elizabeth Gayle, whose grandfather Josiah signed, in July of 1775, the papers of the Revolutionary Association of Public Defence, South Carolina, pledging his life, fortune and sacred honor in the battle until the dispute with Britain should end. The tombstone gives no hint Eliza lived through the War of 1812, the Mexican War and the Civil War, or that her life was full of suffering and loss, despite her privileged birth. This is her story.
