Notes for Nancy ——

Use with caution; documented evidence not yet located.

The 1860 census shows James Cannady living in Perry Township, Noble County, Indiana as a 44 year old male, a master carpenter, with a real estate value of $3,000. The six children (Frances, Martha, Alonzo, William, Amelia, and Henry) in the houseold, are assumed to be the children of Tryphena Rich, James Cannady's first wife. Tryphena presumably died between son Henry's birth in 1854 and the 1860 census enumeration.

Nancy Cannady, age 25, was residing in the household in 1860 and is presumed to be a second wife. She was listed in the household enumeration in the position ordinarily used for the wife.

By 1869, James had married again, to Ann Cuddy; both were residents of Cass County, Michigan.

By 1870, Ann Cuddy was presumably deceased as James' household did not include a wife. Children William J., age 19; Harrison (i.e. Henry), age 15; Mary, age 9; and Lincoln, age 6 were residing with James, while daughter Martha lived as a separate family in the same dwelling with her husband Andrew J. Bunn.

Therefore: all children born after 1860 but before the 1869 marriage to Ann Cuddy are presumed to be the children of Nancy.

By 1880, James was enumerated with wife Jane and two children presumed to be from their marriage (Vera, age 6; and Elva, age 5) and two step-children, presumed to be from Jane's earlier marriage (Edgar Elliott, age 16; and George Elliott, age 12).
