Nancy died in Johnson County Indiana bet 1860-1870.
I have always thought, in the Key and Allied Families, William and Rachel Hansbrough Key had a daughter Jessie born 1875 and thought this might be my Nancy as no one has been able to find this Jessie.
I sent for William Key's will in Montgomery Co, Ohio and he only listed four boys and no other children. Nancy and Samuel married at almost the same time as Caleb Kee/Key married Rachel Stevens.
