On at least one of the Elizabeth timelines (and I think all three), there is a phase near the beginning in which it states that "Elizabeth moves with Booker."

I get what that means to begin with, but suppose Booker is attacked and defeated. Elizabeth is then under control of the player with units controlling that territory. When the next World Event card comes out and Booker goes back on the board in a different location, does Elizabeth teleport to Booker's location, or is she still under the player's control, or does something else happen?

If booker is not with elizabeth, then when he moves, he moves to where she is -- check out steps 9 & 10 of the World Event Phase (pg 10)

I got this timeline the first time I played, and it wasn't clear to me if the sentence applied just to that round or also to all subsequent rounds.

So Elizabeth never moves on her own? The rules say:

'If Elizabeth was with Booker, she stays on the board and is considered under the control of the player who controls her location, until a game effect moves her away from that location ...' (page 14, 'Combating Booker')

But I have not seen such a game effect..

If Booker is Always at the same location as Elizabeth (whenever Booker is on the board), what's the point of Elizabeth..? Or am I missing something..

The point of Elizabeth is that controlling her nets you a variety of advantages depending on the timeline and VP cards that get pulled out.

Ok. So when both Elizabeth and Booker are on the board, then they are always together? Or are there situations that they can be at different locations from each other? Because I guess that would seem more interesting to me, and that is also what the rulebook suggests with 'until a game effect moves her away from that location ...' (page 14, 'Combating Booker')', right?

You do not have the Enraged Songbird promo card? It specifically moves Elizabeth away from Booker. I also think it's far to powerful, but that's beside the point.
