Death: Mar. 10, 1909

w/o David Samuel Woodmansee

Birth: in Highland couty, Ohio

Sued in 1887 over the land she and David held in Carthage. They had deeded the southern half of the lot to their son Solomon, but built the fence 9 1/2 feet too far south. When the man Solomon sold it to had a survey done, he brought suit. Nancy apparently sold the land sometime while the case was pending. In the Jasper Circuit Ct, Nancy's side won on adverse possession (having held the land for more than 10 years openly, exclusively, and withouth Solomon's permission). The Missouri Supreme Court reviewed the case in 1891 and refused to overturn the trial court decision. See Irwin v. Woodmansee, 104 Mo. 403.
