    Notes 
    • Married Henry Barlow, lived near Edray. [Price, p.409] Named in grandfather William's will as Nancy Jane Barlow in 1865.

      Liz Daugherty says she married Peter Shineberry, son of Peter & Christena Shineberry, on 24 Feb 1859, in Poca. Co. If so, Peter must have died or divorced her and Henry Barlow is her 2nd husband (his 2nd wife), and the older Barlow kids might not be hers. See 1860 census notes below.

      Birth, death, parentage, children. Was 2nd wife of Henry. No mention of a marriage to a Shinaberry. Nancy rode over 100 miles to be with her brother George who was dying of Civil War wounds. [1981 Poca. Co. History Bk, p.400]
