Narrative:

     Elizabeth Lathrop was born between 26 Jan 1755 and 1756 in Newent, Norwich, Connecticut.4,5
     Elizabeth married Ebenezer Cobb, son of Gideon Cobb and Abigail Dyer, on 4 Mar 1777 in Newent, Norwich, Connecticut, with Elisha Lathrop, Esq., the bride's uncle, officiating.6,7 Elizabeth moved with her husband, Ebenezer, from Stillwater, New York, to Pawlet, Vermont, by 1780, with their daughter, Clarcy.8,9,10 She was probably one of the five females listed in the household of her husband, Ebenezer Cobb, in the 1790 Federal Census of Pawlet, Rutland Co., Vermont.11 She was probably the female over age 44 listed in the household of her husband, Ebenezer Cobb, in the 1800 Federal Census of Shelburne, Chittenden Co., Vermont.12
     She was probably the female over age 45 listed in the household of her husband, Ebenezer Cobb, in the 1810 Federal Census of Shelburne, Chittenden Co., Vermont.13 She was probably the female over age 45 listed in the household of her husband, Ebenezer Cobb, in the 1820 Federal Census of Shelburne, Chittenden Co., Vermont.14
     Elizabeth filed a request 3 Jul 1826 with the Chittenden District Probate Court to appoint their son Ebenezer as administrator for the estate of her late husband, Ebenezer Cobb, signing it with a mark.15
     
Research Note, 25 Feb 2010:

Ruth Hall also Elizabeth died 31 Mar 1807 in Plymouth, Connecticut. But there is a female of the right age his wife in his household in the 1800, 1810, and 1820 censuses, and his widow Elizabeth petitioned the court regarding his estate in 1826. Unless his first wife died and remarried another woman named Elizabeth, Hall would seem to be in error. There is no record of her death in the Sheburne town records, where his is found.16
