The book by: Dean Crawford Smith, edited by Melinde Lutz Sanborn, The Ancestry of Eva Belle Kempton, 1878-1908: Part III: The Ancestry of Henry Clay Bartlett, 1832-1892 (Boston, Mass.: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2004), pages 290-297, makes a circumstantial case that this Elizabeth is Elizabeth Cheevers, baptized at St. Andrews, Canterbury, Kent, England on 27 September 1639, daughter of Peter and Elizabeth (--?--) Cheevers.
The evidence includes a will of Bartholomew Cheever of Boston in 1693 that names "my Cousin Elizabeth Harwood..." Another Elizabeth, wife of a Henry Harwood of Boston, is another possibility, but may have died by 1693. There are several other possibilities also.
Some suggest that she may be Elizabeth Usher, daughter of Hezakiah Usher.
