Thanks to Karen #47092318 for links to parents.

*Note: Nancy's mother was first married to Francis Valentine Elbert Drake. Because Nancy's name on original birth record is "Nancy B. Drake", some sources indicate Nancy's biological father was Mr. Drake. However, her mother married Wilson Berry Apr 1856, Nancy was born March 1857; clearly her biological father was Wilson Berry, and her name was entered incorrectly on birth record.
