Nancy is shown on the 1840 Federal Census as residing in Guilford Township, Medina County, Ohio with her parents. She is listed as age 0-5.

Nancy "Ann" attended the Moore School in Guilford Township as depicted in the following letter by her daughter, Lydia Ellen Lance-Moore-Vaughn: John Halliwell, Jacob Moore, Daniel Coleman, Joseph Ault, George Mc Dermotte, Jacob Smith, Uriah Johnson and Joseph Halliwell. These are the sons of the heads of families that lived in the section where my mother (Nancy) Ann Halliwell, went to school. Just a quarter of a mile north of the Wayne County line the Moore School stood on the north side of the road, facing south, on the southwest corner of the Jacob Moore farm, today (date of letter unknown) owned by William Peebles. (Section 4 SW)] The commissioners or trustees moved the school house two miles west near Seville and then it was sold to Joe Foster for a tobacca barn. The new school was built at Mc Elroys Corners, then moved back to Lee road and children east of Jacob Moore were sent to District # 9. Pupils Levi, Dave, Lydia, Jacob and Susan Halliwell. The Moore farm was one mile south and two miles east of Seville.

Marriage License as Recorded in Vol 5 page 47 Wayne County, Ohio: Ann Hallowell to William E. Lance were married 8 Aug 1895 by JP Cotton.

The following was written in the preface of the "Lance Book" by Otto A. Moore: ... then with the encuragement old Aunt Lydia Halliwell-Lance and my Grandmother (Nancy) Ann Halliwell-Lance, Lydia's sister, they asked me to take down the record of the older ones for they would soon not be with use. That was in 1899, I was 11 years old and Grand Father Emery Lance had sold his place south of the Chippewa Lake and bought a place of 20 acres in Lafayette Township about three miles south west of Lafayette Center and on the road to Friendville, and that summer I went out to stay with them.
