Nelly Jane Burroughs was born Feb 24, 1802, in Nicholas County, Kentucky. Her parents are unknown at this time, but her bondsman on her marriage license was Michael Burroughs who may have been her father or another relative.

William and Nelly settled into a life of farming in Montgomery County, Kentucky, and raised eight children: Robert Scobee, twin (1826-1890), Mary Polly Scobee-Dooley, twin (1826-1906), Alexander Samuel Scobee (1827-1910), Stephen Scobee (1829-1830), James Washington Burroughs Scobee (1830-1893), George Scobee (1835-1835), Elizabeth A.
