My husband is a descendant of William Drinkwater whose will is found in Cooper Co., Mo., dated 5 May 1846. He names Nancy along with her siblings. By the time the estate was settled in May 1850, Nancy had married Elijah Toler. I found the marriage date - 8 Nov 1846 in Cooper Co. marriage records. My husband descends from Nancy's sister, Ellender (Eleanor)Ann, who married Josiah Shrum. Ellender's mother was Martha Pucket. Nancy was much older than Ellender and she may have had a different mother. Have you tried to get a death certificate for Nancy? I can send you copies of the will, estate papers, etc. of Wm. Drinkwater.
Ellender's death certificate states that her parents were both born in Tenn.
