As told in Beulah's book of the Twidwell Family, Nancy met and married in Johnson Co, TN., (to John Wesley Heath), and 2 of her brothers also married there, to children of Levi & Mary (Wilson) Heath. The 3rd brother, Solomon or Thomas, also died in Johnson Co, TN., and to my knowledge his gravesite has not been identified.
Nancy and John Wesley Heath were married on 11th of March 1851. They had nine children and raised eight to adulthood.

Nancy was the youngest child of Obediah [c1787-1860] & Elizabeth Kennedy Twidwell, [c1788-c1855], not Mary Twidwell, (Nancy's sister), as named in The Twidwell Book. Also Levi's wife, Mary Wilson, was not a daughter of John Wilson Jr. and Sarah (Boone) Wilson.
