When Winnefred Nimmons died, her will mentions heirs ABNER SHUTTLE (SHUTTLESWORTH) and wife MARGARET (Nimmons), ELENOR NIMMONS (Nellie), EBENEZER THOMAS and wife MARTHA (Nimmons), ELIJAH EMERY and wife SARAH (Nimmons).Dated March 7,1856.
There are no other children listed. So, I suspect that Carolyn, is no closer than grandchild. Nellie is perhaps the only daughter old enough to have had Carolyn. Nellie was living alone by 1860. I will have to look back at the 1850 to see what I can find.
