Notes

  • A Miller Family genealogy gives us Elizabeth's first name.
    Nancy Elizabeth MILLER b: 1850
    --  Miller,http://awtc.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=*v28t1777&id=I0778

    But this genealogy also had two entries for what appears to be thesame child.  Entries appear for Elizabeth and Nancy Elizabeth withbirth dates apparently estimated on the basis of censuses I have notyet personally reviewed.  Ages lead to possible birth years of 1847,1948 and 1850.
    Elizabeth MILLER b: 1848
    Nancy Elizabeth MILLER b: 1850

    In the 1850 censsus, Nancy is already reproted as 2 years old.  Butages in this census compared with later ones vary considerably on themembers of this family, generally reporting them as older than latercensuses and birth dates form family sources would allow.

    1850 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 12 November, PrairieTownship, page 31, Hse/Fam #15

    Nancy Miller 34 F b Alabama Cannot read or write
    Mary Ann Miller 13 F b Mississippi
    Nancy E Miller 2 F b Mississippi

    The 1860 census below reports an age of 10, which, if accurate, wouldmean birth before July 1850.  The name there is also Nancy Eliza.  Itmay be that the genealogy erred in reporting her full name asElizabeth.  Perhaps Eliza is the full name, though it could be anickname for Elizabeth.  Eliza was also a common given name in thisera.

    The 1880 census age would put her birth at 1846-7.  Here she isenumerated as the widow E Holbert, with her children in her parents'household.

    Nancy later married the Boarder in their household, William SamDeBerry.  In 1900 they are in the same area.  From the birth of theirfirst child, it appears they married about 1882.  Some of Nancy'sfamiliy are staying in the same household.
