Elizabeth Minyard was born 1805 in Franklin Co GA in the Nathan Smith Settlement. And, the family migrated by 1816 to Marion Co MS.

On 4/4/1822 in Lawrence Co MS, Elizabeth married Thomas Case III b.1798 in Georgia. And, the family is first documented in the 1830 Lawrence Co MS Census.

In 1833 the family migrated to Copiah Co MS, and brother John Minyard came along. The family is found in the 1840 through 1860 Copiah Co MS Censuses.

We know that the family lived and farmed, but not much more is known. Reportedly, Thomas died in 1880. Elizabeth subsequently lived in the home of daughter Celia Smith. Elizabeth died after 1880 and is buried in Macedonia Cemetery, Lincoln Co MS.
