What leads us to believe Daniel Garrard married a Washington?

I am a descendant of George Humphreys and Frances Garrard. Copies of histories at Gibson Co, IN, stated she was the niece of Gov. James Garrad, which led me to her father, Daniel.
Recently, I made a match with a descendant of Lucy Garrard Stephens (sister to Frances) on the Family Finder DNA test at familytreedna.com. Thus I started to see what new information was out there.
I find that several people say Daniel Garrard's, wife, Elizabeth, named in his estate, was born a Washington. BUT...I find no one telling me WHY anyone thinks this. What records support the idea. And...obviously, she'd have to be related to President George Washington--wouldn't she???
