Elizabeth Patton emigrated to America in 1738. She met her husband, John Preston, while crossing the River Shannon in his boat. John was a ship's carpenter and was said to be very handsome. Elizabeth felonged to the "upper class" and a ship's carpenter was below her station, so her family opposed the marriage. Nevertheless, the couple eloped and married in spite the objections of her parents
After their arrival in America, Elizabeth & John Preston lived at the home of Colonel James Patton on his Spring Hill estate near the present town of Staunton, VA.
