Hi Cherry,
I would love to have the info. you have on Nancy's second marriage. Here is what I have on Richard and Ann Cratch. He is first found in the 1790 census in Carteret Co., NC. In 1810 he bought, at auction, property in Craven Co. (now Pamlico Co.) on the Bay River and Alligator Creek. He died in 1811 in Craven Co. His Will was written February 28, 1811 and his obituary was in the Raleigh Register 21 March 1811: "Richard Crutch an old respected character". (The spelling of Cratch has been found several different ways.) In the will it begins with the spelling of Richard Cratch and he signed it Richard Crutch. Both of these are very clear. I have seen the original in the archives.) Any way, I do not have a date of birth for him or his wife Ann. I have not found anything indicating what her maiden name was either. She died about 1818, I think. The children listed in his will are: John, Esther, George, Elijah, James, Jordan, Elizabeth, Nancey, Louisa, Priscilla and Ann.

John: married Sarah "Sally" Reddick 1814. DOB ? Died 1828 in Beaufort Co.

Esther: DOB June 2, 1781 Died December 16, 1824. Married Absalom Fulford before 1811. (Her name in the will was Esther Fulford.)

Elizabeth: Born June 26, 1792, Died February 2, 1837, Married William Carroway January 20, 1813 then she married Seldon Jasper Delamar July 7, 1816.

Nanc(e)y: Born between 1790 and 1800 and died about 1840. She married Christopher Delamar August 16, 1818.

Louisa: no DOB or death. Married William Carruthers March 10, 1819.

George Cratch: no DOB, died 1817. Married Nancy Tillman June 22, 1811 in Craven Co. They had George T. and Henry R. T. I think Christopher Delamar became their Guardian until his death.

Elijah: Died about 1827 in Craven Co. He married Mary York December 4, 1816 and Sarah "Sally" Ann Carruthers Februar 3, 1825.

Jordan: Born about 1795, and died before July 10, 1834. No info. on the marriage.

James: No DOB or death. Married Charlotte Brown October 3, 1820.

Priscilla: Died before 1837. Married Noah Miller September 13, 1823.

Ann Cratch: no info yet.

All the children were married in Craven Co., NC except Esther and she was married in Carteret Co., NC.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if I can be of any more help.
