Elizabeth Griscom 'Betsy' Ross (1752-1836) is generally credited with having made the first American flag. Ross lived in Philadelphia and started an upholstery business with her first husband John Ross. She made flags for the Pennsylvania navy during the Revolutionary War, and repaired and produced other items including uniforms, tents and blankets. She had three husbands, the first two of whom died during the war, and seven daughters. Her grave is at Betsy Ross House, a popular tourist destination in Philadelphia, although it is not clear that Ross lived in the house.
