In the 1900 U S Federal Census, Nancy's record indicates that seven children of twelve born to her were still living. No information found on five others.

Both of Nancy's parents had died prior to 1870; in the U S Federal Census of that year she is enumerated with her fraternal grandparents, Allen and Ann Mariah Dowdy, along with one brother, one half-brother and one half-sister. Jane Dowdy, youngest child of Joel Wesley and Sina Haggard Dowdy is not enumerated with her siblings.
