It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Elizabeth by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Elizabeth:
Schauer Fiedler-1 and Schauer-290 appear to represent the same person because: Fiedler is simply her married name. The birth date and place, and the place of death, show that these are the same person. However, it does not look like she could have married both the husbands. The Goodrich bio says her name was Showers. And it was unusual for a New York/Pennsylvania German to marry someone in Connecticut.
