Seeking info re: Nancy Adams (c1800 - aft1870) of Pickens (now Oconee) Co. SC.
Nancy m. Robert Cobb (c1790-1850), probably around 1825-30.
Nancy Adams and Robert Cobb had the following children:
1.Caroline (b. c1834) -- aka Frances? 2.Mariah (b. c1836)-- aka Ann? m. John M. Adams 3.Robert Jr. (b.1838) m. (1) Susan Long (2) Nancy Long 4.Martha Elizabeth (b.1840) m. (1) E. T. Brown (2) A. E. Clinkscales 5.Roland (b.1842) m. Mary Hughs 6.Andrew (b.1844) (my ancestor) m. Elizabeth Todd;
Robert and Nancy apparently were never officially married, but they clearly had a strong common-law bond which lasted more than 20 years.In the 1850 census, Nancy is widowed and is listed as head-of-household under the name of ADAMS along with her four last children. Frances ADAMS, possibly a sister, is found in an adjacent dwelling.In the 1860 census, Nancy is found in the household of her son Robert COBB, Jr., and in 1870 in the household of Andrew COBB.She presumably died before the 1880 census.
Some have reported that Nancy ADAMS was born in NC, and the census entries suggest that she was born around 1804, but I have no definite proof.
If anyone has information about Nancy I would appreciate a direct contact via email.Thanks in advance.
