He was the son of Levi and Synthia Henry McMahan. They had a daughter they named Cynthia Elizabeth, for Nancy's mother, and a son named Baxter Leo. They lived on Tabcat Creek near Calderwood in Blount County, TN in 1900 and 1910. After John died in 1911, Nancy moved in with Cinthia and her husband John Bivens and their two small children, and was still with them in 1920.
