Both Ludwig and his younger brother Michael had daughters under 10 years of age in the 1820 Pa census. As both these brothers moved to Harrison county sometime in the 1820's and are both in Cadiz in Harrison county in the 1830 census, Ludwig with a daughter aged 15-20 and Michael with a daughter aged 10-15, your Elizabeth could belong to either. If she belonged to either of these Lightners, I would think Michael would be more likely as it appears from one of the censuses that Ludwig's wife is slightly older than him, so born 1765 at the latest which would make her aged 50 at the youngest when she gave birth to your Elizabeth - possible, but getting remote.
I would also think she got married in the township and county where her parents lived. Do you know where she married?
