Try finding wills and probates and guardianship records. Even someone who died without a will might have had his/her property and personal effects go through probate. Check to see if she is mentioned in her grandfather's or grandmother's will since her own father appears to have died young. Even if her mother was living, there might be a guardian assigned as in that time frame, women were often not considered to be competent. Also look for her mother's will.
