I have claimed Nancy B Williams as a dau/o my ggg g/mother Elizabeth Williams, and as sis/o William J Williams, my gg grandfather. I have Eliz in 1850 Christ. Census. I found the following info in the Christian Co Library in Hopkinsville in Christian Co Marriages:

Know all men by these presents, that we John Miller and John Rasco are held & firmly bound unto the Commonwealth of Kentucky, in the penal sum of fifty pounds.....this 7th day of November, 1823......whereas there is about to issued from the Clerk's office of the Christian County Court, a licence for a marriage short intended to be solemnized between the above bound John Miller and Nancy B. Williams.

Along with it was a hand written note on a small piece of paper that Elizabeth Williams wrote and signed to the County Clerk:

The clerk of the county court will be so good to issue license upon John Miller to marry my daughter.
Signed: Elizabeth Williams

Christian County Library, Hopkinsville KY, Christian County Marriages.

I have no proof that my claim is correct other than the age of Nancy would be right and that I have found Elizabeth Williams with 2 children in early Census. I know Elizabeth was a common name and so is Williams. The attached note by Elizabeth would indicate that Nancy B Williams was her dau.
