Ella Ourie 1870-1879 Iowa

Do you know the parents or siblings of this Ella Ourie?

The 1880 U.S. Mortality Schedule for Iowa lists "Persons Who Died During the Year Ending May 31, 1880". The listings for Iowa, Lee County, City of Keokuk, 6th Ward, Enumeration District 23, page 1 of 1, line 1 near the bottom of the page titled "Additions to Lee Co. from Supplemental Schedule" shows:
Ella B Ourie, Fem, White, Single, b. Iowa, b. ca 1870, age 10, d. Oct 1879; Cause Dropsy [an excessive accumulation of fluid in a body cavity or tissue -Dictionery]; Place of Death Keokuk, Ward 6, Lee Co., IA.
That entry is indexed in the 1880 Mortality Schedule as
-A-lla B. Ourie, but the enumeration sheet clearly shows it to be Ella.

There is other abbreviated data on the sheet, and no explanation of its meaning:
1. L? D Iowa [parents birthplace?]
2. ED 117 [Ella's death place in Enumeration District 117?]

Do you know the parents or siblings of this Ella Ourie?
Thanks for your advice.
