Norris -- MD to OH by 1828

I am looking for the family of my maternal 3rd great grandmother, Harriett Norris, who married Moses William Cottrell in Montgomery County, Ohio, on 30 June 1844. I believe she was born in Montgomery County on 21 March 1828 and died in Indiana in April 1888. She is buried in Gard Cemetery, Brown Township, Hancock County, Indiana.

The 1880 census states that her father was born in Maryland and her mother was born in Virginia. I do not know their names or if they stayed in Ohio, but clearly they had migrated to Ohio by 1828, and the marriage certificate mentions an affidavit of age by her mother.

I have done the full sequence mtDNA test and's autosomal test with no leads and will be grateful for any suggestions and help anyone may be able to give.
