William's wife, nee Nancy Ann Powers (who had been married to a Mr. Hand) did marry a man named Anklin following William's death, but did not remain married to him for very long. Nancy Ann Powers was a daughter of Joseph Powers and his wife Elizabeth (maiden name unknown). They lived in Jefferson township of Madison county. Nancy Ann Powers Hand French was living with William and five of their children in 1860 in Monroe Township of Madison county OH. Nancy was born 4 April 1823 and died 21 August 1896. In 1880 she was living with the Christ. Plymell family in Deer Creek Township of Madison county. The wife of Mr. Plymell, Arabelle, was one of William and Nancy's daughters. Mr. French is buried in the Plumwood Cemetery in the small village of Plumwood in Madison county. I have a photo of his gravestone. The Joseph Powers noted above is my great great grandfather.
