Ingersoll family in Miamitown, Ohio, 1800s

I am trying to determine the parentage of a Mary Ingersoll, who appears to have married Paul Baxter (also shown as Warren Baxter, Paul Warren Baxter, or Warren Paul Baxter) in the Miamitown area in the mid 1830s. She was born about 1811. From what I have been able to find so far, I think she may have been the sister of James Ingersoll and/or William Ingersoll, and thus possibly the daughter of the James Ingersoll who was born ca. 1760 in Egg Harbor, Glouster County, New Jersey and came to the Miamitown area in the early 1800s.

A death certificate for Mary's daughter, Philena Baxter Thackeray, gives Philena's parents names as Paul Baxter and Mary Ingersoll. However, there is a marriage certificate on file in Miamitown between Paul Baxter and Polly (nickname for Mary) Parmar in 1836. I am wondering if perhaps Mary Ingersoll was married originally to a man named Parmar or Parmer, and then subsequently in 1836 she married Paul Baxter? There are 3 daughters under the age of five in Paul Baxter's household in the 1840 census, and at least one (Delilah, born ca 1833) predates the Baxter/Parmar marriage date.

I have found children of James Ingersoll, originally of NJ and then of Ohio, listed as John, William, and James. However I've so far found nothing on a Mary Ingersoll born in or near Miamitown abt. 1811 and would love to know if she appears in anyone's research! Many many thanks!
