Fearless Females - Brick Wall

The Fearless Female blog prompt for today is:

March 20 — Is there a female ancestor who is your brick wall? Why? List possible sources for finding more information.

I've already posted something about Elizabeth Horton (Dill) Smith, so let's say Mary (or Molly or Magdalena) Hoax (or Houx, Houcks, Hokes, etc.) (ca 1768-1850). I have written several times about her - see The Elusive Mary Hoax (ca1768-1850, wife of Martin Carringer) for the problem statement.

I tried to find more information about her Hoax/Houx/etc. parents in Searching for Mary's Parents - Post 1 and Post 2. I wonder if I will ever finished this task? I doubt it. Drat! Where's the darn to-do list?
