Hi, Nancy,
Nancy Overlin was my gr-gr-grandmother. She Married Thomas Roberts in Luce Twp., Spencer Co IN in 1835. I believe her father was Jonathan Overlin but so far haven't proved it. She named a son Jonathan, I think (don't have my records with me right now and haven't looked at it in a while). Back then most people named their children after fathers and grandfathers. There were two other Overlin's in Spencer Co and Warrick Co back then--William and Eli. Nancy was born about 1814-1817 and gave her birthplace as KY. There was a Jonathan Overlin and Mary Allen who married in either Nelson or Hardin Co KY (Hardin was formed from Nelson) in 1806. Nancy and her husband Thomas Roberts are buried in Spencer Co IN. If you want any more info let me know. I can look up what I have when I'm at home.
