I found where I became convinced that she was the daughter of Lydia Cooper... from a Russell researcher, George E. Russell. Made perfect sense, because John Russell and Elizabeth Fiske had their first child 15 Sept 1669, and continued every couple years. If Elizabeth's father married Seaborne Sarah Wilson in 1655, that would make Elizabeth VERY young at marriage and birth of children. Not impossible but unlikely. It would also make her 25 years younger than her husband, again, not impossible but unlikely.

So, I still think she was the daughter of Lydia Cooper... but why, oh why, does everyone else list Wilson?
