Nasby MILLS and Nancy ELKS - Pitt Co., NC
I'm trying to figure out some confusing information about one of my ancestors.
Mary "Polly" Mills was my G-G-G-G-Grandmother
b. 31 Aug 1816
m. 16 Feb 1837 to John Stanley Dixon
d. 4 May 1873 in Pitt Co.
From what I understand, her parents were Nasby Mills and Nancy (Ann?) Elks (daughter of Samuel Elks?).
The tricky part is that based on the 1850 census, my Nasby Mills would have been born in/abt 1772.
I've seen various family trees mentioning this family posted on rootsweb and ancestry.com, but they all have Nasby being born about 10 years earlier.
Can anyone please help me sort all this out?
I'd be so grateful!
