I'm wondering if you meant to connect to a different profile (?), because Elizabeth Howe does have parents, and although there are no sources on either profile there is a marriage date, and the maternal grandfather appears to be well-sourced which would hopefully give you clues as to where to look for sources for the parents and maybe Elizabeth?
In situations as you described where there is basically nothing on the profile apart from a name and the name might be a common one, I first check the Changes tab, just to see if originally there were extra details but for some reason the profile has effectively been 'orphaned'.
Check with the profile manager if there is one.
If there is still nothing, then I think it is appropriate to either turn that profile into someone with the same or similar name who you perhaps can connect to the whole tree, or merge them into an existing profile with the same or similar name.
