Betsy Ross: An Early American Life. Elizabeth Griscom was born on January 1, 1752, in the bustling colonial city of Philadelphia. She was the eighth of 17 children. Her parents, Rebecca James Griscom and Samuel Griscom were both Quakers.
Betsy Ross, a fourth-generation America born in 1752 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, apprenticed with an upholsterer before irrevocably splitting with her family to marry outside the Quaker religion. She and her husband John Ross started their own upholstery business.
Per Betsy Ross‘ story, she met with George Washington, George Ross, and Robert Morris in the spring of 1776, to have the discussion that eventually led to the sewing of the first American flag. She continued to run her upholstery business while reportedly making flags for the U.S. until the late 1820s.
