Nancy Lilly was born on 13 Jan 1835, Mercer County, W.Va., a daughter of Robert "Bearwallow Bob" Lilly and his wife Elizabeth Payne Lilly, according to a Lilly researcher.
(Robert's nickname referred to a place on his land that the bears favored.)
Nancy married Jackson Vest (1832-1917) on 15 Feb 1855 in Mercer County. Jackson was a son of Charles Vest and Elizabeth Via Vest.
Jackson and Nancy's children were:
Columbus "Lum" Washington Vest, who married Malinda Jane Cochran.
Martha Adeline Vest, who married Edward Ashworth Kelly.
Mary J.E.F. (Elizabeth "Lizzie") Vest, who married Isaac Plumley.
Albert P. Vest, who married Hannah Margaret Smith Adkins.
Lucinda "Cindy" Vest, who married Samuel H. Smith.
Nancy died on 23 Aug 1909 in West Virginia. Nancy and Jackson are buried in the Anderson Vest Cemetery (also known as the Via Cemetery) in Summers County, W.Va.
