Which Elizabeth is the correct first wife of Daniel Stroud?

+8 votes
Daniel Stroud was married twice, first to Elizabeth who bore him 11 children and secondly to Mary Paul.  I found two profiles on wikitree who claim to be Daniel's wife Elizabeth.

Elizabeth Shoemaker [Shoemaker-859], the daughter of William Showmaker and Susanna

Elizabeth Schoonmaker [Schoonmker-96], the daughter of Frederick Shoonmaker and Elizabeth.

Sometimes, names get changed in translation from one language to another, but the parents of the two Elizabeth's don't match.  Yet the birth and death dates of the two do match.  Does anyone have any verifiable evidence that one of the two Elizabeth's is the correct 1st wife?

              Our family is a relative to Mary Paul the second wife of Daniel Stroud.  We have Elizabeth Shoemaker as the daughter of William Shoemaker and Susannah Richardson, because they all lived in Pennsylvania.  

              It looks like the Elizabeth Schoonmaker daughter of Frederik was born in New York.  The distance would make it improbable for this person to be the wife of Daniel Stroud.
