Nancy was the daughter of John & Nancy (Gilbert) Mobley. Her father was born about 1792 in South Carolina and died about 1877 in Chambers Co AL. Her mother was born about 1801 in Halifax Co, NC and died between 1850 and 1856 in Henry Co, GA. Her father remarried to Martha, probably in AL.

Nancy's full siblings, all of whom are listed on the 1850 Henry Co GA census, were Elizabeth Mobley Adamson, Mary Mobley, William Gilbert Mobley, Susan Mobley, Frances Jemima Mobley Adamson, and Nancy Drucilla Mobley Mann. Her half-siblings were Sarah R Mobley, John J Mobley, and Susan Mobley.

Nancy's grandparents were:
William B & Drucilla (Meador) Mobley
James & Elizabeth (Blanchett) Gilbert.

Nancy married G Abner Burks on 4 Jan 1849 in Henry Co GA. They were the parents of William Henry Burks, John David Burks, Alara E Burks Adamson, Immanuel M Burks, Frances Adella Burks Adamson, and Noah C Burks.


Thank you to cousin, Diane Jones, for helping me solve the mystery of the death year on this headstone. Nancy did not die in 1894. She is alive and well and living with her son, John David Burks in 1900 Bartow Co GA. She drew a CSA Widow's Pension beginning in 1891 and each year through 1904. Her sworn witnesses in 1891 were G F Golden, G B Stephens, and Isaiah Sanders.
