Elizabeth, wife of Charles Stevens, Jr, is a possible ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln, according to Roberts, Ancestors of American Presidents. 
Elizabeth's first name is derived from the first mention a wife for Charles Stevens, Jr, and that is in the administration of his estate, in which she is named as administratrix -- as Elizabeth Brown, since she remarried before Charles' estate was settled. 
Roberts gives her name as (prob.) Elizabeth Unknown, married (1) (prob.) Charles Stevens, Jr.; married (2) Thomas Browne. The daughter of Elizabeth Unknown and Charles Stevens, was Elizabeth Stevens who married Robert Shipley. 
Elizabeth's full name at birth, her birthdate, and her parentage are all unknown. If one estimates that women are often three years younger than their husbands, then her husband's estimated birth year of 1658 would be matched with a birth year of 1661 for her.
Her birthdate has been estimated and based on notes imported with the biography. Her birthdate was originally set to 1750, but that would make her more than 100 years older than her husband. Also, her name was imported as "Margaret," but the notes on her profile show Elizabeth, so I've changed her first name. -- Fiscus-32 23:11, 24 February 2015 (EST)
While Elizabeth served in the role of widow upon Charles' death, no record has yet been found of her marriage to him. She must have been married in time for her children, of whom there were at least four, to have been born in time to do things which they have on record.
She married, firstly, Charles Stevens, Jr., son of Charles Stevens and Susannah Norwood, circa 1670. Her married name became Browne. From circa 1670, her married name became Stevens.
One sources gives the following particulars for Charles Stevens, Jr, without further attribution:
Charles Stevens died 6 Aug 1706 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland - Account 
Elizabeth was already using her second married name, Elisabeth Brown, at the time an account was given of Charles' estate:
Elizabeth (?) married, secondly, Thomas Browne, following Charles' death, and is named as Elizabeth Brown in Charles account administration.
No further information has been found on the remainder of Elizabeth's life.
There is no clear documentation for the children of Charles Stevens, Jr. If he was born in 1658 and married at the age of 21 (1679), then his children were born between the year 1679 and the yeare of his death, 1706, when he would have been 52.
In addition, there are other persons named Charles Stevens in the vicinity who may have fathered some of the children whose father is named Charles.
Rutherford  reports the following children:
Susannah Stephens is not listed by Rutherford. Other sources claim Susanna to be daughter of Benjamin of John.
As reported by Mike Marshall, Charles and Elizabeth had four children:

If she *is* Elizabeth, she should probably be merged with the other wife on Charles Stevens, Jr's profile.
