Nancy Campbell

According to Kentucky, Compiled Marriages, Isaac Trowbridge married Nancy Campbell on 20 December 1796.  This is also confirmed by Kentucky Pioneers and Court Records. The 1810 Census lists Isaac Trobridge right between William taylor and Johnson Thompson.  There were six household members living with Isaac at the time.  Two of those were over 25 at the time, I’m guessing that was Isaac and his wife Nancy.  Four of them were under 16 years old.  I’m assuming they were their children.  […]

Weekly Recap – October 6 – 12 2019

How Did I Do This Week? I’m noticing lately that the more work I do processing hints and ancestors, the more hints I’m getting.  Maybe I’m looking at this all wrong.  Maybe the goal shouldn’t be to get to zero hints. I know I processed a lot of hints these past few weeks, and yet I have 23 more hints today than I had this time last week.  I have a whopping 957 more records to sort through than I […]

Nancy Jane Singleton

Nancy J Singleton married Victor Thomas Buchanan on 15 August 1847 in Lawrence County, Illinois according to Illinois Marriages to 1850.  Victor was 31 years old when he married Nancy J.  There is a fourth marriage record, Illinois, Marriage Index, 1860-1920, that I think was transcribed wrong because it lists her name as Nancy I. Singleton instead of Nancy J. and the date of marriage is 18 August 1846 instead of 15 August 1847. In 1850, Nancy lived with her […]
