I am researching the ancestry of John ( b. 1830 / 1831 KY ) & Ermine ( possibly Frazer or variation of ) ( b. 1836 / 1837 KY ) Wooldrige / Wooldridge. They married probably 1854 / 1855 KY. They had a daughter, Mary ( b. 1855 / 1856 KY ) and a daughter, Martha ( b. 1856 / 1857 MO ).
In 1860 they were living in Grand River, Henry, MO. Also living with them were Alexander ( b. 1840 / 1841 MO ) and Nancy (b. 1858 / 1859 MO ) Faris ( or variation of ). I don't know the relation between Wooldridge and Faris nor the relationship between Alexander and Nancy. I'm thinking Alexander might have been married to or the son of a sister or niece of John or Ermine that may have died in childbirth and that Nancy was his daughter or sister. I believe Nancy took the Wooldridge name either through adoption or convenience and that as she got older was known as Nannie.
I have been unable to find actual birth records for any of these people or records of their ancestors. I am primarily interested in the biological ancestry of Nannie Wooldridge or Nancy Faris. Nannie Wooldridge b. 8/7/1859 married 12/1/1878 Saline, MO to ( H.H. ) Henry Horace Button. They had 3 children. There is only Nancy Faris in the 1860 census and no Nannie but both were born in 1859 so I am guessing they are one and the same.
Any info or clarification would be greatly appreciated.
