I have hit a brick wall with Elender Wood (also written as Eleanor or Ellen in some sources - but tombstone says Elender) and am looking for her parents and siblings.

Elender Wood was born abt 1809 in Kentucky (from 1860 US Census) and died 24 Jul 1865 in Warren County, Indiana.

She married Ira Cobb (1810-1846)(son of Semer Cobb and Esther Lewis)on 14 Jul 1831 in Warren County, Indiana. They had 7 children, Semer Cobb (1834-1911), Jasper Cobb (1835-1836), John Henry Cobb (1836-1866)m. Elizabeth S Pearce 1862, Virgil Cobb (1841-1863), Enoch Cobb (1844-1912), William Cobb 1846-1847), Martha J Cobb (?-?).

After Ira Cobb's death she married a widower Andrew Pearce (son of Thomas Pearce and Mary Barnes) (father of 10 including Elizabeth who married Ira Cobb) (1798-1880)on 3 Mar 1850 in Warren County, Indiana. Together they had two children Thomas W Pearce (abt1855-?) and Harvey A Pearce (1852-?).

She is buried in Gray Cemetery near Pine Village, Indiana. Her stone says Elender Pearce, wife of Andrew.

Any information or leads on who her parents and siblings were, where they came from or went would be most appreciated.
