I clicked the RootsSearch links on her and Daniel's profile to pull up FamilySearch results for them and added sources to their profiles. 

She was born in New Jersey according to the censuses she was enumerated on.

If she died in New Jersey, a death certificate for this period will list her parents.  I made a number of searches for Apgars and Malindas in the index to State Archives Death Records, June 1878 - December 1900 database, but couldn't find a likely death record for her (I did find Daniel, who was of Roxbury, Morris County when he died). 

She was still living for the 1885 New Jersey State Census but was not living with Daniel in 1895 when he was enumerated with their daughter Carrie and her husband.

I also found Daniel's grave and added that to his profile but there's no memorial in that cemetery for her. 
Good luck with this mystery!
