Seeking information on the 7 children named in Iris Shreve Garrott's email"Peter Nance" under Nance family forum.
One daughter:Sallie(Sarah) Bailey Nance marries an ancestor of mine in Woodford County, KY. in 1860's.
On her marriage bond "James Thornton" gives permission, as her grandfather.
James Thornton's wife is Sarah Bailey Hawkins Thornton (daughter of Moses: see "History of Woodford County by Bailey)
I have evidence that his daughter Elizabeth marries Peter Nance in Jefferson County,Ky 1815. Her parents are both dead at this time.
The other children that Peter Nance and Elizabeth Thornton had are ( according to email cited above):
With Elizabeth Thornton he had 7 children:

Lucy Ann Nance was born Sept 15th 1815(married William Davis)
Mary Thorp Nance was born March 17th 1817
William Nance was born August 1st 1818
Sallie Bailey Nance was born May 4 1820(married Edmund Willis Dawson Woodford County)
Susan Thorton Nance was born Jan 1st 1822
Emily Craton Nance was born Oct 20 1823
James Thornton Nance was born July 27 1825
Is there any info on ANY of these people???
Is there any other Dawson/Nance connections from Woodford, Anderson or Trigg Counties?
