Wow, sounds like one family I have, "scrambled." I was already starting to build a family for Nancy before I got to the paragraph where you gave your ideas. I think you're on the right track. It would sure help if you could find marriage for Thomas & wife Emma (lots of Emmas in the family)and find out if she was a Smith. If Cally is Nancy's dau, she would have been born about 1864, making Nancy's husband alive up til about then.

Are you sure Dock was b in TX? Where was Emma Hooker born? Was it TN? Maybe they were in TN until after the Civil War, then went to TX to be with family. On one of my husband's lines a widow left TN after the war, with 2 small children, and joined her brother and his family already in TX.

Who knows, I don't think even "the Shadow do" about how some enumerators asked and wrote down information for census???? Just keep plugging away, the answer has to be out there somewhere.
