Nancy R. Burwell of Mecklenburg County, VA

My second great grandfather, John J. Coleman married first to Nancy (Ann) Ravenscroft Burwell in December, 1839 and they are together in the 1840 census of Mecklenburg County. Both, John J. and Nancy were born in Mecklenburg County.

By 1842, John J. Coleman is a land owner in Fayette County in what is now Fayette County and in Feb. 1849, he marries Isabella Carnefix, who was at that time also living in Fayette County, but was orginally from Buckingham County, VA.

My question is, does anyone know what happened to Nancy Burwell, John's first wife? Did she stay behind in Mecklenburg County when he came to Fayette or did she die prior to his relocation? Did they have any children together?

Any ideas or thoughts on this matter would be more than I currently have, so feel free to speak up.
