Joseph and Nancy Ann were my great-great grandparents.
You show daughter Ruth J. After the death of her grandmother, they started calling her Nettie, as it was too painful for John Pike McPherson to call her by his wife's name. All of the records I have for her, she signs herself Nettie, which was short for Jenetta. She married Almond Gerusha Hammond.
I know nothing more about Nancy except she was born in KY, think her parents were born in VA.
I will have to contact Martinsville IN and see what I can find.
The McPherson's were Quaker, Nancy wasn't, so Joseph was "disowned."
