Ellen/Ellie/ Eleanor CRESSEY b.c1794 Maine need info pls.

I am searching for info on an Ellen/Ellie/Eleanor Cressey/Crecey that was born arounc 1794 most likely in Maine. She married Sept. 20, 1809 in Whitefield, Kennebec Co., Maine to John MOODY who was born Feb. 15, 1791 son of Scribner Moody and Sarah SMITH.
From an old genealogy done by Joseph BEAN, he proclaimed that Eleanor Cressey was a Penobscot Indian Princess.
However Maine Families in 1790 vol. 4 states that "they" can find no evidence of this.
Would anyone here happen to know different? Also who were Ellen/Eleanor's Parents and would anyone here have a complete list of their Children?
Eleanor died c1839 prob. Pittston, Kennebec Co., Maine and is most likely buried at the Old Moody Cemetery there.
Thank you for any other info you might have regarding this family.
Please post here, I will check back later. Thanks
