After searching the 1830 and 1840 Clermont Co., OH census, this one was the best possibility for your Elizabeth's parents.
1830 Clermont Co., OH - New Richland Twp.
1 male 5 to 10
1 male 40 to 50
1 female 5 to 10 *
1 female 10 to 15
1 female 40 to 50
1840 Clermont Co., OH - Ohio Twp.
1 male 50 to 60
1 female 20 to 30
1 female 50 to 60
(The "*" female on the 1830 census, might have been really close to being 11, and by the time the 1840 census was taken, she would have been past her birthday, and thus being in the 21 age bracket, making her in the 20 to 30. I THINK that the 1830, 1 female 10 to 15, was your Elizabeth.)
From the 1850 census, it appears that Sanford is deceased, and his widow is living with who I am thinking is the '1 female 20 to 30' from the 1840 census, namely Caroline.
1850 Clermont Co., OH - Ohio Twp. - October 5, 1850
Wiggins, John N. - 37 - farmer- $1800 - KY
Caroline - 36 - KY
Andrew H. - 5 - OH
Tewell, Ellen - 52 - KY (should be 62)
The above family was living next to a William Wheeler who was 70, a farmer and born in ME.
Your Elizabeth was:
1850 Clermont Co., OH - Washington Twp. - October 30, 1850
Wheeler, John - 36 - cooper - $300 - ME
Elizabeth - 34 - KY
Leonidos L. - 12 - OH
Alonzo B. - 10 - OH
Emley A. - 8 - OH
From different listings at the LDS site, it is a good possibility that Ellen was a second wife for Sanford, and that his fist wife was named Mary. That would explain the age difference.
Birth: 27 APR 1772 , , Virginia

This was a son of Sanford and Mary, meaning an older brother to Elizabeth. Arnold would have been the son of Sanford and Mary.
