I have two Nancy Linton’s in my family that were married on this day, a few years apart. Nancy Millie Linton married John Proctor Mize 178 years ago – July 20, 1835 – in Logan County, Kentucky. Nancy was the daughter of Benjamin Franklin Linton and Lucy Crewdson. John was the son of William Mize and Lucy Proctor. Nancy and John had one daughter, Lucy E. Mize. Nancy Linton Mize died shortly after her birth.
Nancy Millie Linton married Jonathan Joseph Edwards 184 years ago – July 20, 1829 – in Washington County, Kentucky. Nancy was the daughter of Moses Linton and Ann Nancy Pead. Jonathan was the son of Edward Barber Edwards and Nancy Linton. Nancy and Jonathan had 7 children: Alfred, Lucretia, John E., Susan, Edward, William and Ben Edwards.
The two Nancy Linton’s were first cousins.
