Elizabeth Denny (Nickerson)

I am looking for information on Elizabeth (Eliza) Nickerson. I know very little about her. One of her 6 children (Mahala George Denny) was my great grandmother. Mahala was born 20 Oct 1842 in Morgan Co. Ohio, married Benjamin Franklin Pike 7 May 1879 in Linn Co., OR and died 5 Jan 1922 in Newberg, Yamhill Co., OR. From this I am guessing Elizabeth was born sometime around 1820. She married Christian Denny but I do not know where or when. Christian died in a wagon trail accident near the Columbia river in abt 1852 in route to the Willamette Valley in OR. According to the 1870 OR Census Elizabeth was liviing in Brownsville, Linn Co., OR, was 50 years of age and was born in Ohio. Mahala's death certificate says however that Elizabeth was born in Massachusetts. I do not know where or when she died. If you can help me "fill in the blanks" I would certainly appreciate it. I am particularly interested in finding out information about her parents and any siblings. Thank you. Denny
