North Carolina, USA
|Death: ||Oct., 1870|
Nancy M. Scurlock was born in North Carolina circa 1803/04. Her father is believed to be James Scurlock, who died in Natchez, MS in 1805. On November 1, 1824 Nancy married as his second wife Benjamin Capps (b. 1780/90-d. bef. June 12, 1832) of Williamson Co., TN. Capps was from Davidson Co., near Nashville. The couple is known to have had two sons: James Allen (b. 1825) and Joseph Horton (b. ca. 1832), both born in Nashville. Sometime after the death of her husband, Nancy and her sons moved into the Nashville household of John Eakin (1850, 1860 Federal Census). Later, Nancy reportedly lived for a time with the family of her son James Allen Capps, a riverboat captain in Washington, St. Landry Parish, LA. She died at about age 67 and was buried on October 3, 1870.
