Birth: 1628 Cambridge Middlesex County Massachusetts, USA Death: Oct., 1698 Hartford Hartford County Connecticut, USA

Elizabeth was the daughter of Francis Tough and Deacon Edward Stebbins.

She married Robert Wilson about 1653 and had two sons, John and Samuel. Her husband died about 1657 and she married for the second time to Thomas Cadwell in 1658.

Elizabeth's father, Edward Stebbins was a Deacon of the Congregational Church and served 21 regular terms as Deputy to the Connecticut General Assembly.[1]

She and Thomas Cadwell had ten additional children. Thomas prospered in Hartford and owned twelve tracts of property by 1668. He entered into a seven year agreement in 1682 to operate the town ferry over the Connecticut River, and renewed the contract for another seven years. [2]

She renewed her husband's contract with Hartford Town and continued to operate the town ferry over the Connecticut River after her 2nd husband's death in 1694. Her second son, Lieutenant Thomas Cadwell, who was 33, took over and later assumed operation of the ferry which served the town of Hartford.
