I am trying to find some information on the above couple. Nancy WILLIS was the sister of my 3rd g-grandmother, Elizabeth "Betsy" WILLIS. They were daughters of Hannah SETTLE and William WILLIS of Barren Co., KY. John Turner TINSLEY was the son of Elizabeth "Betsy" Turner and Moses Tinsley, and I am VERY distantly related to John Tinsley through his mother. She was a SUDDARTH descendant, and so am I. Nancy Willis and John Tinsley married 21 Jan 1826 in Barren Co., KY. They were on the 1830 and 1840 Allen Co., KY census, and then they apparently moved to Gonzales Co., TX. He was a physician. He died there 5 Mar 1878 and I don't know when she died. I haven't seen it, but she is supposed to be on the 1850 and 1860 Gonzales Co., TX censuses.
Their children were:
Fountain Gillespie Tinsley, married Sarah Almedia Davis [they were in Bexar Co., TX in 1880].
Mary G. Tinsley, married Jordan W. Sweeney; she died 19 Jul 1852.
Virginia Tinsley, married Andrew J. Moore [she died Jan 1865, Gonzales Co., TX].
Amanda Tinsley, married Crockett Jones [in Lavaca Co., TX in 1880].
John Willis Tinsley, married Dora Houston [in Gonzales Co., TX in 1880].
If anyone has any information on these folks, I'd love to hear from you. I'm trying to locate information on the WILLIS family. firstname.lastname@example.org
