It's very likely Elizabeth was one of the four daughters of Henry Fowler of Granville, Nova Scotia, whom he names in his will. They were all underage at the time (1787). The other Fowler families who are known to have settled in the area are accounted for. She and her family lived in the Ditmars "Long House" in Clementsport.
