Thank you again for the additional information - and yes, if you come across anything that might help me flesh out my Searcy family I would appreciate knowing about it. Below is a tentative pedigree for Nancy Cates. I say "tentative" because I´ve not checked any of the sources myself. But both Linda Cates and Nancy Cates Radelat are dedicated researchers and I would tend to accept their results. I think much of the information regarding the Cateses is based on research done by Dr. Banks Cates, Jr. - and he is, I believe, THE authority.
I will send the expanded version of Nancy´s pedigree to your email address. It contains "The Hatter", "The Shoemaker", etc. If you would like to have a GEDCOM of her pedigree please let me know.
