Nannie was the mother of Mary J. Lilley born 1868; Edmond Randolph Lilley 1869-1960 and Sallie Elizabeth Lilley/Hall 1871-1948. Her parents were Reuben Marshall Harris 1805-1882 and Lavina (Laura) Matilda Fristoe/Harris 1818-1874. Contributor: Karen Higman-Austin, GGG Grandaughter.

Nancy was born April 4, 1844. She married Jabez McCorkle on March 26, 1863, and he died June 2, 1863. The family's gristmill burned and Nannie, on her way to buy flour in Kansas City, she was arrested (in July). She survived the Union jail collapase on August 13 with a broken ankle. Escaping with her life in that tragedy, she lived with her parents when Federals burned their home and gristmill around September 6. She finally left the turmoil in Jackson County, walking on her ailing ankle more than 100 miles to Howard County, Missouri. After the War, Nannie married James E. Lilley, the son of a Kentucky native, John Lilley, another of Quantrill's guerrillas. The couple was listed in the 1870 Census living in the Lee's Summit, Missouri, area, still suffering from injuries sustained in the Union jail collapse. Nannie passed away on November 10, 1872, at age 28, she left three small children. Her husband Jim, died a few years later on March 9, 1875. Nannie and her two husbands are buried side by side in the Davis-Smith Cemetery.
