About Nancy Jane Karins

Nancy had black hair and blue eyes. Henderson Ky., near present day Robards, Ky. She taught Edna Billy Lollis to quilt before Edna was old enough to go to school. Nancy watched Edna while Will and Rosa worked in the fields. She said that Nancy Jane liked to fish, but didn't eat them, but did cook them for dinner. She went to Cameron, Ok. to visit some of the kids, fell and broke her hip, and died there. Nancy had a bright mind and was very active until she broke her hip. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The 1850 Henderson Co., Ky census has Nancy born in Virginia..but I think this is not correct. 1860 census shows her born in KY. This census also shows Elizabeth as age 12 and Nancy J as 8, but I think they should be reversed, as the 1850 does not show Eliz. at all. By 1870 Nancy and Elizabeth are no longer in the H/H, probably married. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Nancy Jane's birth is recorded in the KENTUCKY (Henderson Co) Birth Records. Parents listed as James and Priscilla Gish Brickey ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Some of this information is from Sue Pemberton, email Edna Lollis records Helen Hankinson Records Marilyn (2004) Marilyn's date for James I Karins is May 1, 1841, Carroll Co., Ky. and died Dec 6 1911 in Cameron, OK. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1880 MARION, SEBASTIAN COUNTY, AR. CENSUS James Karins b. 1857, KY Jane B. (this is Nancy Jane Brickey) Karins b. 1956, Ky. Children Rosy b. 1870, KY and Cora, b. 1875, Ky. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Some notes from Woody Hammond about Nancy's birthdate: There is some dispute on Nancy's birth date. Most family reseachers use 26 August 1849 as her birth date. That is the date on her tombstone. It is supported by the 1850 census where Nancy Brickey, age 2 is listed as 2nd of 2 children of James and Priscilla Brickey in KY. However her KY birth record says she was born 1 October 1852. This is supported by the 1860 Census which says she was 8 years old in 1860. However she should have been 12 if she was born in 1849. Instead she is the 3rd child and her sister Elizabeth is listed as the 2nd child, age 12. I have not found her in the 1870 Census. In the 1880 Census she is married and listed as 24 years old or born about 1856. That is not 1849 or 1852, but certainly closer to 1852 than 1849 In the 1900 Census she says she was born in August 1851. In the 1910 Census she says she is 57 which would place her birth about 1853. I have not found her in the 1920 census. In the 1930 Census she is 79 and her birth would be about 1851. She also says when she was married she was 17 years old. She was married in 1870. Her age on the census supports a birth around 1851. Her age when married would support a birth around 1853. 1943~death at Cameron, OK. When was she born? She seemed to think it was after 1850 anyway. I think in the 1850 census, it was Elizabeth who was called Nancy at the time (for whatever reason). But there is certainly enough data to confuse all of us. Draw your own conclusions. There is probably some data to support it. :)
