Sisters Laura and Johanna Eggleston

Surnames: Eggleston Lackor
LAura Eggleston B 1809 in New York, was married to Thomas Powell and then Absalom Dennis with whom she had one child, Elizabeth Powell (my 3rd G Grandmother) B 1848.

Laura had a sister named Johanna Eggleston (my 4th g grandmother) B 1820 and D 1841 who married John Lackor, with whom she had a child, William Smith Lackor (my 3rd G Grandfather).

All of this gets very confused in the very limited data I can find as after Johanna dies at age 21, Laura raises Johanna's son William who then marries her daughter Elizabeth.
After talking to family and going through what I have been able to find online, I have pretty much sorted things out to that point but I am stuck in finding the Eggleston sister's parents. It seems that the sisters were born in New York and Johanna was buried there. At some point, Laura moves west to Iowa and marries Absalom Dennis who is either widowed or divorced.

I would love to move on back with the Eggleston line but I am stuck.
