Thanks, Scott, for the response to my inquiry. It's certainly possible, maybe even probable that the Carrolls you mention and my Nancy are related. But the Nancy's wouldn't be the same person. My Nancy married John Adam Counts 08 May 1797 in Orange County, NC, then moved to Tennessee where her first child was born about 1801. John and Nancy were in Tennessee (Countstown in Franklin CO) until sometime between 1824 and 1830 as the last child was born in TN about 1824. They moved to MO and were listed on the 1830 Scott CO, MO, census. They then moved to Washington CO, MO, where John died in 1858. Nancy went Reynolds CO, MO, probably because some of her children had settled there. She is listed on the 1860 census of that county with occupation listed as seamtress. (At least that's what the word on the census form looks like.) Nancy died about 1865 in Reynolds County. I have quite a lot of information on her descendants, but none on her parents or grandparents. The family lore says she was Cherokee. I had always dismissed this as just another tale, but I've found other researchers who say it is true and I'd like to know.
