Nancy A Alley do of Daniel Nelson Alley
I have finally cracked my "brick wall" with the help of some online friends. I have traced my greatgrandmother back to her parents, I believe due to some detective work on the censuses in Indiana. I found Andrew Sholty in the Tipton County Indiana Census of 1860 living with his wife Nancy A. age 26 and children. I knew that her maiden name was Alley but I thought her first name was Mary. In this particular census, Noah H. Alley 20 was living in their home as a farm laborer. I am assuming that Noah would be Nancy's brother. Marilyn Canfield was a tremendous help in piecing this puzzle together for me. She said I should get in touch with Dodderidge Alley's decendents for more information. She said that Nancy's parents were Daniel Nelson Alley and Margaret Wines of Decatur County Indiana. She told me that Noah married Mary Balser and had 5 children and lived in the Tipton and Howard Counties of Indiana. I would love to hear from my newfound Alley reletives.
