Nannie Drennon Hanson & Elizabeth Drennon - Rome, GA

I am at a bit of a standstill with my family history research. My GG-grandmother is Nannie Drennon (b. 1882 - I am unsure if "Drennon" is her middle name or her maiden name), married to Clayton Augustus Hanson. Their children are Hazel Inez (my G-grandmother), Marion, Ruth, Addie, and John. They lived in Rome, GA. Nannie passed away in 1966 and Clayton passed in 1919.

I found the 1910 census which shows them all living together in Rome, GA. But on the subsequent census, it shows that Nannie is a widow (Clayton having passed away the year before) and that her mother, Elizabeth Drennon, is living with them, and she is also listed as a widow. On Clayton's WWI draft card, it shows that his wife is named "Nannie Drennon Hanson". However, I have been unable to find her birth records and even though it shows that Elizabeth Drennon is her mother, I haven't been able to find anything that shows Elizabeth having a daughter named Nannie.

Several sources have stated that this Elizabeth Drennon is Elizabeth Drennon Byrd but she didn't have any daughters named Nannie or any children born in 1892 either.

If you have found any information on any of these individuals, please let me know. I am really frustrated that I have gotten this far, but I have exhausted all the resources that I have access to.
