Parents' names are often noted on marriage applications:

York Archives, affidavits of death:
DAWSON, FLORA E. 5/2/1938 28-063

In case Nancy Dawson was living with her brother in the 1880 census, I went looking for a Nancy Rhodes in 1850 and found:

Series: M432 Roll: 839 Page: 415
1850 - Paradise Twp., York Co., PA - 12/14/1850
Rhode, Samuel - 48 - farmer - $9,600

-- Lydia - 14
-- Sarah - 12
-- Nancy - 10
-- Abraham - 7
-- Margaret - 8 mos.
Becker, Israel - 21 - laborer
PA for all.

Hope there is something useful here. Good luck with your search!
