Nancie Sheffield (1866-1887) of Early County, GA

Classification: Query
Surnames: Sheffield Taliaferro Lawrence Paine
I am researching the parents of Nancie Sheffield of Early or Calhoun County, Georgia, who was the daughter of Seaborn Sheffield. She was born February 3, 1866 and died January 31, 1887. On March 9, 1884 she was married to Benjamin Taliaferro and her only child was Ben Seaborn Taliaferro of Early County, GA who was born January 16, 1887. I know Nancie's father was Seaborn Sheffield (1821-1886), but I would like to discover the identity of her mother. Seaborn Sheffield apparently was not married to her mother, but legitimated Nancie and educated her. By folklore, I am told her mother was an Indian, likely Creek. She had a sister named Ellie who married Rufus Lawrence.
