  • There appears to be considerable uncertainty on the birth date for Hancy Arnold.  Various sources in a short initial search produced three different dates, in a range of 24 years!  The date of 1785 is most reasonable in reference to the known birth date of her husband, James Gaines, in 21 July 1783.

    The source that gives a birth date for her in 1766, however, is the only one that reports a place of birth, Virginia.  I am using that state as place of birth, lacking any other at this point [28 March 2007]; that place seems reasonable.  But I am using the date of 1785, from the Old Pendleton District Genealogy,  as a birth date, which seems to fit the generational patterns.  I expect there was an older Nancy Arnold, which the compiler of that One World Tree database confused with this Nancy Arnold, wife of Jmes Gaines.
