Searching for parents of Nancy Underwood (Unknown-34306)

I am looking for information regarding the Nancy who was married to Obediah Underwood, Sr @ 1785.  He was put out of his Quaker meeting house because of this marriage, as Nancy was not a member of the Society of Friends.  

Many family trees on ancestry.com and Family Search indicate her last name at birth as Blackburn, but there is no supporting documentation to verify this claim.  Most list her parents as Moses Blackburn and Nancy McGrew, but that has been proven incorrect by the Blackburn Family Association.  One of her profiles contains a comment that her parents were John Blackburn and Mary ? Elizabeth Henderson.  The Blackburn Family Association has also proven this to be wrong.  They have no information on a Nancy Blackburn fitting my timeline and suggest that Blackburn was not her last name at birth.  

Suggested birth information is she was born in Scenery Hill, Washington County, PA around 1767.  There is a gravestone of a Nancy Underwood in the Bethlehem Lutheran Cemetery in Scenery Hill.  However, the church has no records as to the burial, and the headstone indicates a birth span from 1772 - 5 Sep 1842.  

Can anyone help me or provide suggestions?

Thanks, Lindy
