I think that getting a copy of the will (and any associated probate records) would be very enlightening for you. Start with the will and if it mentions Nancy as wife, you know you want the probate records, but even if it doesn't, the probate records -- and any associated land sale records -- might help you nail a connection.
Here is the website for the Marion County Iowa Genealogical Society -- with information on research requests. Might be good to start with an email to one of the contacts at the bottom of this page. I hope you will keep me posted (I'm at email@example.com). Jan Therkildsen
