I am searching for the parents and ancestors of Nancy Howell born October 26, 1794 and died May 11, 1873. She married February 16, 1818, Montgomery County, John Shelor born October 24, 1791 and died September 27, 1877 in Patrick County. (John and Nancy Howell Shelor have many descendants living in Floyd County, VA.) Thank you for your help. I will gladly share information I have on their descendants and John Shelor's ancestors.

I am a bit confused by the information above that DANIEL HOWELL is the husband of Susanna Hylton. My information is that DAVID HOWELL is the husband of Susanna....i.e.
Marriage found inOVer Mtn Men page 13,
Howell, David and Susanna HELTON -Elijah Helton surety.

While I know that there is nothing like a original document instead of info from a book, this is the first time I have seen it written that Daniel married Susannah and not David.

Is there any chance that this Nancy Howell who married Mr. Shelor is a widow - and brought children into the marriage with her?

In the Patrick County Death Records, Nancy's father is listed as Daniel Howell. Susannah Hylton married David Howell. I think we are looking at two different people, although there can always be a mistake in the recording of the death.

I think we are looking at two different people as well. Elijah Hylton's will (Montgomery Co., Va. Will Book 1, page 139) lists his son-in-law as David Howell. Susannah Hylton and David Howell's daughter Nancy married Isham Rigney. Nancy Rigney is listed in the 1840 Fed. census, so I don't believe she could be the Nancy Howell who married John Shelor. There is another Nancy Howell, daughter of Daniel Howell, whose mother remains a mystery.

Daniel Howell was my fathers gggrandfather, his gggrandmother was Frances Bartlett Howell. Ivory Mae Howell Eales was my grandmother, Taylor Eales my grandfather. Her father & mother were, John Wesley Jr. and Lucinda Jones Howell. His father & mother were, John Wesley Sr. and Sarah Rakes Howell, according to my records. Hope this straightens things out.
