Elizabeth DuPre Britton

Elizabeth's first marriage was to William Goddard. He died after a son was born. Samuel took him in as his son. At the end Elizabeth became an outstanding heroine of the Revolutionary War by acquiring the distinction of "Widow Jenkins" after she warded off the British at her home. There is a monument at the gate going into Bethlehem Methodist Cemetery, Bishopville, South Carolina. (source: Singeltonfamily.com) ---------- There seems to be no consistency among family trees on the spelling of DuPre. Some add an e, some use a lower case p, and some do both. I will use DuPre everywhere for consistency. The addition of an extra e does not seem to have any justification in French.
