Isreal T and Elizabeth Piatt Canby

Elizabeth Piatt was born c1799 (probably in Boone County, Kentucky) to Robert Piatt and Nancy Jones and died before April of 1845. Elizabeth married January 1, 1817 (probably Boone County, Kentucky) Israel T Canby who was born in Upper Marlboro, Prince George's County, Maryland and died April 11, 1848, in Crawfordsville, Montgomery County, Indiana. Elizabeth had predeceased him having died before her father's will was written in April of 1845.
