Hi, Sorry it has taken so long to answer.I have been trying to find out where I got the info on Nancy Alexander other than the census, but haven't had a chance to go thru all of it yet.What I do know is that I personally have looked into the following census records which indicate that at times Nancy & Samuel B., Sr. lived with Daniel H. because they are listed in the same household with Daniel H. & Abegail being listed first & then their children.The first records I have of Samuel B., Sr. is him being the head ofa household in 1830 in Houston Co., GA; & in Irwin Co., GA in 1840.Remember, too, when looking at Census Records in the part of Georgia that the Clantons lived in, Irwin Co. was created first & it was huge.Later is was broken down into Berrien & Lowndes, etc.In the 1850 census, it lists Samuel B., Sr. in Irwin Co. at age 50 with wife Nancy at age 48 & they live with Daniel H. (at age 26).In 1850, Daniel H.'s brothers (Arthur age 28) & Samuel B., Jr. (age 22) both live in Lowndes Co.Lowndes Co. had just been cut out of the southern portion of Irwin Co.This makes me believe that they still lived close to each other, but now in different counties &probably the young men married between the 1840 & 1850 census polls.The next decade (1860) they all looked for greener grass & had moved to Madison Co., FL by the time the 1860 census was taken.I know they are all the same people because the records show the right ages and the right states of birth.Too, Madison Co. is the most northern FLA county which is just below Lowndes Co. (the most southern GA county).By 1860, Samuel B. must have died because he is not listed in the census.But, in Madison Co., FL, the census lists Nancy as age 58 & lives in the household with Daniel H. (age 36) & his wife Abegail (age 30).Also living in Madison Co. is Daniel H.'s brothers (Arthur at age 39) & (Samuel B., Jr. at age 28) & it says they were all born in GA.By 1860 Daniel H. & Abegail have a son (age 1) who is born 1/3/1859 in FLA & his name is Daniel also.This is Russell's father.By 1870 they all decided the grass was not greener(except Samuel B., Jr.) & they moved back to Berrien Co., GA (Daniel H. was age 45; Abegail was age 38; & Arthur was age 46).Samuel, Jr. stayed in FLA..Berrien Co. is the county just north of Lowndes & was once a very huge part of Irwin Co.In 1880 Lowndes Co. Census, Daniel H. is 57; Arthur is 59.In 1880 Madison Co., FL Census Samuel B., Jr. is age 54.
