My connection to Elizabeth is only by the marriage of her younger half brother, Albert Joseph Brewster.  Albert b. 1859 was the son of Bridget Cassidy (Elizabeth's mother) and Thomas Ambrose Brewster.  Albert Joseph Sylvester married Grace Elizabeth Alice Louchlan Blight, her parents were John Louchlan Blight and Ellen Dewhurst.
