Does anyone have any information on NANCY WALKER b abt 1790 in VA, probably migrated to Hardin or Mercer co KY, and from there to Corydon, Harrison Co IN, where in 1814 she married SIMON VAN ARSDALE. They had numerous children. Sons were WILLIAM H and ALEXANDER, two first names which do not appear in the Van Arsdale family. I suspect that her father or brothers may have had those names.
Nancy, along with her husband and most of her children, died during the cholera epidemic of 1832, most likley in Indiana.
Three daughters survived: HARRIET Van Arsdale m Samuel Enfield, MARGARET Van Arsdale m Nathan Caldwell, and my gg grandmother NANCY Van Arsdale who married Eli Branson Frazier. The three girls lived with relatives in Montgomery & Boone Co IN, and according to sources were bound out for service when they came of age, until their marriages. Margaret & Nathan eventually moved to Iowa.
Any help greatly appreciated.
