Three WV Drain Men: Isaac, John, and Presley

Im looking for information on the 1st wife of Isaac Drain and the second wife of John Drain. These wives happen to be the same person, a woman by the name of Nancy E. Carroll. I suspect Nancy is the daughter of my 3x great aunt.
I have been unable to find Nancy beyond her two marriage records and the 1870 census in which she living with widower John Drain (1st wife was Melinda Cunningham) and his children. She had 2 children of her own who have her last name in the census but are possibly from Isaac.

Any information on Nancy or her children Senora/Lenora and Robert J is very welcome. Also if anyone can tell me how the two Drain men are related that would be nice as well. Although she is transcribed as Senora at I think it is possible her name was Lenora since if she is the daughter of my Barbara Carroll her great grandfather's name would have been Leonard.

Nancy's cousin (if Nancy is indeed my family) Lousia Jane Ice married Presley Drain. If anyone knows anything about who his parents were and if he is realted to the two men above let me know.
