About Elizabeth Brandon

2nd wife: Mary Elizabeth Patton. The widow Mary Elizabeth Patton Locke married John Richard Brandon about 1743 in Middleton, Chester, PA after the death of her husband John Locke.

"...she was first married to a Locke who didn't make it to America. I think having the Lock name is good and so useful in connecting her to her children." [edit from Eliz Davis Hanebury]

Inscription: "And here Ly's the Body of ....Who deceast Aged 55 Years: Late Wife of John Brandon."

Note: She shares the stone with her husband John. The engraver spelled her name Elezabeth.

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Locke_(U.S._Congress)_

Matthew Locke was born to John Locke (1700, England –c.1744, Lancaster, Pennsylvania) and his wife Elizabeth (c.1705, England –1760, Rowan County, North Carolina) in the north of Ireland, from where his family migrated to Pennsylvania, where his father died. His mother and siblings migrated to North Carolina and settled in Anson County, North Carolina (in an area now part of Rowan County). He was married to Mary (née Brandon) Locke (b. 1735) sometime around 1749 in Rowan County. He married a second time to Elizabeth Towers Gostelowe in 1798.[1][2]
