Nancy is found in the 1850 Census living in Benton County, AL. She and her husband John moved to TX in 1852 and settled near Lexington, in Lee County, where they raised 8 children. In 1871 they moved to Waco, TX, so the children could have better educational advantages. Nancy died only a few days after arriving in Waco, at age 72. Their youngest child, Pyrena, was born in Lexington, on 4 December 1866 and died about 1882 at age 16.
