It looks like your Elizabeth Osman Rhodes Nehs is indeed the Elizabeth Osman who is the daughter of John Osman and Rebecca Bellis. About a year or so ago I found an abstract of her obituary in the Evangelical Messenger on that Allen County (Indiana) Public Library website, but I was not aware that the obituary contained a more accurate age so I didn't bother trying to ask a local genealogist for a lookup.
Well, another Osman researcher got a copy of the obit, and it gave her age as 84 years less 23 days, which, counting backwards, gives a birth date of March 10, 1806.
A John and Rebecca "Digeman" baptized a daughter Elizabeth, at the First Reformed Church in Easton, PA on August 23, 1807, and the birth date given for her is March 10, 1806, an exact match. John and Rebecca Osman baptized at least one and maybe two other children at this church as well, so I am pretty sure that "Digeman" should actually be "Osman". So that pretty much cinches her as their daughter.
So yet another piece of the Osman puzzle solved.
