Was Mary Lorton who married John Wesley Nance a daughter of Robert and Tabitha. Once read a disjointed account which did not quite clarify her relationship. This couple lived in Shelby Co IL and are buried in Mud Run Cemetery. Lorton and Nance were neighbors in KY before coming to IL
Also would like to know how Elizabeth Lorton who married, successively Elza McDaniel, Samuel Lucas, and James O'Mara was descended from this couple. First husband died shortly after disability discharge from Civil War. Second may have been a widower and died early on. Third was also a widower. Think she had only one child, Grant McDaniel, who died young. I assume she was a granddaughter. Can look for specific dates, if helpful. First and third marriages in Shelby Co IL. Know where all of her husbands are buried--3 different cemeteries in Shelby Co--but not her. She MAY be buried unmarked beside first husband and son at Mt. Olive/Sellers/Bryant Cemetery in Shelby Co.
