Densey Ingersoll

Does anyone know the parents of Densey Ingersoll b. abt 1794, probably Luzerne County, PA? I read two old newspaper articles about her from Gleaner & Luzerne Advertiser (Luzerne Cty, PA)03 May 1811, stating she lived in Northmoreland, Luzerne, PA but went to Braintree (same county) to care for her elderly grandmother. While she was there, a few questions were asked about possible impending motherhood but she denied the possibility. On 30 Apr 1811 she left the room about 1:00am and returned without notice. The following weekend a body of a baby wrapped in an apron was found near the water. She was arrested & hospitalized, but escaped custody. Since my 3gr grandparents were living in that exact area & the age is consistent, I am naturally curious. Also, if anyone is familiar with this story, what was the outcome? Iknow this is a tough one, but I have to try.
