Nancy was born in Ohio to Rev. John Wesley Starr and his first wife, Hannah McWilliams.

At age 19 she married Orin Belknap in Licking County. In 1847 she traveled with her husband and children to the Oregon Territory. They became a farming family in Benton County and had at least nine children--Margaret, Rachel (#24951296), Jonas, John W., Philip N., Clarinda (#79979168), Silas (24951433), Olive (#24951404), Hannah Rena (#24951422), and Silas.

By 1890 Nancy and Orin had moved to California, where they had a farm. In 1900 they managed a home for 62 boarders. Orin died in 1902, and Nancy lived another five years.
