Nancy Stinson was born 08 Apr 1789 in Virginia to Mary and George Stinson. She married William Bertram/Butram, son of Sarah (Patterson) and William Butram, on 19 Feb 1807 in Lee County, Virginia. They migrated to Wayne Co., Kentucky in 1809, bringing their first child, Joel, with them. They settled first in the *Mount Pisgah area of Wayne Co., KY, where they joined Bethel Baptist Church at Parmleysville; then they moved to what is now known as the Sunnybrook community. Nancy and William were the parents of twelve children: Joel, Mary, Elijah, Sarah, Ephraim, Jacob, Ahial, William J., Jonathan, John Calvin, Martin Luther, and Nancy Bertram. All of their children except Joel were born in Wayne Co., Kentucky.
Around 1848 William and Nancy, and their children who stayed in the area, began spelling their last name as BERTRAM. William and Nancy became known as "The Parents of the Wayne County Bertrams" for this reason.
Nancy and William became Charter Members of the Pleasant Hill Baptist Church at Sunnybrook when it was founded in 1841 and remained faithful to the church the rest of their lives. They are buried there in the church yard with many of their descendants.
Nancy also had a brother, George Stinson (married Sarah Arter), who settled in Wayne Co., Kentucky. He died 21 Sep 1857 in Wayne County and is buried in the Stinson - Coil Cemetery at Powersburg, Wayne Co., Kentucky.
* The Mount Pisgah where Nancy and Wiliam settled for a while was in Wayne Co., Kentucky but because there is also a Mount Pisgah Church in Bradley Co., Tennessee some accounts mistakenly say they settled in Bradley Co., Tennessee before going to Wayne Co., Kentucky. This is definitely incorrect!
