     Elizabeth Geddie was born on 24 Sep 1809 in NC.2 She was the daughter of James Daniel Geddie I and Isabella McPhail.

Elizabeth Geddie married Alexander McKeithan on 16 Apr 1832 in Cumberland Co., NC.3 Elizabeth Geddie was enumerated in the census of 1850 in Cumberland Co., NC, in the household of Alexander McKeithan.2 Elizabeth Geddie was enumerated in the census of 1860 in Cumberland Co., NC, in the household of Alexander McKeithan.4



Note: According to the tombstone in MacPherson Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Elizabeth, who was married to Alexander McKethan, died 26 Feb 1832. His marriage record shows him marrying Elizabeth Geddie 16 Apr 1832. Geddie-McPhail says Elizabeth Geddie was the d/o James Daniel Geddie and Isabella McPhail. On the Cumberland Co. GenWeb site, there is info that says she was the d/o John "Big John" Geddie. The tombstone says the w/o Alexander was b. 1809, which fits with the 1850 & 1860 censuses. So how likely is it that Alexander married some Elizabeth b. 1809, d. 1832, then married Elizabeth Geddie in 1832, also b. 1809, and in the 1850 & 1860 censuses. Elizabeth Geddie was buried in MacPherson Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Fayetteville, Cumberland Co., NC.5
