Carte de visite of a woman identified on the reverse as Mrs. Elisha Westcott; the photograph was taken by the Morton studio on Westminister Street, Providence, Rhode Island.
Although I found more than one Elisha Westcott in Rhode Island, I believe, based on the woman's age, that she was Sarah Miranda (Williams) Westcott, wife of Elisha Potter Westcott of Cranston, Rhode Island.
From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections and additions welcome!]
Sarah Miranda (Williams) Westcott was born 21 August 1843 at Newport, Rhode Island, the daughter of Turpin and Dorcas (Andrews) Williams.
On 6 June 1861 at Cranston, Rhode Island, Sarah Miranda Williams married widower Elisha Potter Westcott, son of Jonathan Potter Westcott and Salota (Fish or Fisk) Westcott. Elisha was born 6 January 1833 at Cranston or Coventry, Rhode Island. He had previously been married to Elizabeth (Briggs) Westcott.
Sarah and Elisha had at least two children:
- Edwin Turpin Westcott, born 28 August 1863 at Cranston, Rhode Island
- May Westcott, born 20 December 1873 at Cranston, Rhode Island
