From familysearch.org appears her father was William J Leard/Laird and her mother was Angeline R.  Maybe tracing some of her siblings will provide you with more?

Also there are Civil War records for William J - can't tell if the same person.  And his 1897 probate record, names most of those children,  indicates his spouse as S E Leaird  (Susana E Leonard) so Angeline R must have sometime after the 1870 census.
