Notes for Nancy Pettit
Pendleton Co. marriage records, Bk. 1, p.32, lists marriage of David Craig & Nancy Pettit on 14 Apr 1811.
Margaret Spiry's family group sheet (see Notes for Amos Pettit) has a note by the line for Nancy which is partly cut off on my photocopy. What is visible is: "2m)24 Aug 1\ Charles Wh" (the \ is a line break.) Steve Navaro lists her second marriage as "Charles S. Wheeler, 1828". I've combined the two halves of the date.
Virginia Loomis gives Nancy's birthdate as ca 1790, and lists her before George. Steve Navaro gives it as 1792, and lists George first.
1850 census of Grant Co., Ky, town of Crittendon, enumerated 14 Sept, lists as family #727/728:
David E. Craig, 25, merchant; Nancy Wheeler, 58; Mary, 17; Permelia Craig, 23; J. M. Pettitt, 39; Zerilda, 27; Mar L. 1. All born in Ky.
David, Permelia and Zerilda are children of Nancy (Pettit) by her first husband David Craig, who died in 1827. Mary is her daughter by her second husband Charles Wheeler.
I have not found Nancy in the 1860 census. She may have been shuffled between families enough that none of them counted her as a permanent member of the household.
In 1870, Nancy is listed as age 80, with her daughter Zerelda.
