If you know anything - anything at all about this family will you take a moment and share it ??? Nancy has been a "a mile high CONCRETE wall" for years and years !!!

Nancy Germany born abt 1803 in GA - parents & siblings still UNKNOWN after all these years.......
.... we don't even know if Germany is her maiden name.

married John McCRAINE on 10 Jan 1828 in Wilkinson Co, MS
.... John was born between 1800-1809
.... John died abt 1844 Wilkinson Co MS
.... John was the son of Murdock McCraine & Elizabeth Shaw

Nancy & John McCRAINE had 5 daughters born in MS :
(1) Nancy Caroline b abt 1829 married Silas W. COBB
(2) Elizabeth Ellen b abt 1830 married Francis B. HAYNES
(3) Martha Samantha b abt 1835 - missing after 1860 census
(4) Cordelia Amanda b 1839 married Paschal B. BONDS (also lived in Amite & Lincoln counties)
(5) Albany V. b 1843 married John Robert JOHNS

Nancy has been reported to have died in Jan 1876, however, we have been unable to locate her anywhere in 1870.

IF she was still living in 1870, she was probably living with her daughter Elizabeth Ellen & husband Francis B. HAYNES or with her daughter Martha Samantha who may be unmarried, married, widowed, or even dead.

We have not been able to locate Elizabeth or Martha in 1870 either. I've searched the 1870 census every way possible except with no search info whatsoever....!!!

In 1880, Elizabeth was living with her husband and no chn in Wilkinson Co MS but still no trace of Martha unless she was married or living on some obscure island no one had discovered yet .....?

Our heartfelt thanks for taking the time to read this.
If you have even the tiniest bit of information to share, we will be forever indebted to your thoughtfulness.
Jeannette and Kathye
