Portrait of Mrs. Waring

I'm trying to identify a portrait copy said to be of Mrs. Waring, connected to the Faulconer family of Little Egypt, Tappahannock, Essex County, Virginia. The copy was arranged for by Mrs. Mary Elizabeth "Bettie" Faulconer Krueger Thornton (1901-2002), late of Richmond, Virginia, who was buried in Culpeper, Virginia.

Because of which family line it came down through, I believe the copy to be either Miss Elizabeth Susan Waring (1828-1890) who married first John Waller Faulconer and second to Dr. John Samuel Trible, or more probably her mother Mrs. Mary Banks Waring, second wife of William Lowry Waring I. The portrait to me looks to be an adult woman clothed in the early 1800s. Can anyone point me to where a portrait of either of these ladies exists so I can compare?
