You are in luck, because she lived to 1925, when the state of Iowa took a census, and asked everyone who their parents were. I started with that:

Iowa, State Census Collection, 1836-1925
Ella Elliott
Birth Place: Iowa
Census Date: 1 Jan, 1925
Residence: Osceola, Clarke, Iowa
Relation to head: wife
Mother: Elizabeth Randle
Mother's Birthplace: Mich
Father: James Pack
Father's Birthplace: Ind
Marriage Place: Iowa
Spouse Name: H F Elliott
Roll: IA1925_1659, Line: 22
Household Members:
Name Age
H F Elliott, 60
Ella Elliott, 59


Then I tracked her through the federal censuses.

I can't find a death record. We have two of James Pack's siblings, which will may help find him in 1860 and 1850.

I drew a blank in 1860. Here they are in 1850. Note Tilman is a year older than James. Tilman is rare enough as a given name that I'm 99% sure this is them. Also Thomas is with them in 1870.
