How to find out about a ancestor if they barely have any census or information on them?

Hi,

I was looking to find some advice on how to find if someone who has barely any information on them? My ancestor, is not even on a census, she is my great great great grandmother, my dad's fathers' mother.

I have searched countless search engines, tried name variations, has anyone else experienced this? Where you can't find the ancestor on a census, or marriage cert., or death cert., I found a record of a birth that was it.

If anyone could please help point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

I can provide names, locations if interested in assisting.

Thank you
