Grandmother Nancy was born in Harrison Co., Kentucky, and she met and married Fielding McDaniel there, after which they made the trip to Lewis Co., Missouri, with all their children except the daughter who had died at the age of eleven months.
Nancy’s paternal ancestors came from Northern Ireland in 1738. Because of taxes they owed the King, George III of England, her great-grandfather, his uncles, and their father were forced to flee Ireland.
