Wiliford?)We do not know her mother’s name.Nancy had 12 children, 8 living in 1910 (1910 census).Major Adams b 1887?Lewis Adams b Aug 9, 1888 (death certificate).Hattie Adams b Aug 27, 1889?Maggie Reeves (Ragsdale)b 1892?Mattie Reeves b 1901?Ed (last name?).Carrie (last name?).Mary (last name?).Thank you for any information you can give me.
