      There are two death records listed for Nancy Crawford, one shows she died Feb. 28, 1954 (1854?) age 65 years, the second states she died Feb. 29, 1855 age 60 years of Consumption. According to the 1850 census (see below) she was born in 1799.

      Adam Hatton born 1780 served and died in the War of 1812. They had one child, ADAM HATTON, JR. Adam's widow received a bounty of land of 160 acres and $60.00 in addition to a monthly allowance.

      Nancy gave her land and money to her father JOHN MALONEY, Sr. to rear her son Adam, Jr. Nancy's second husband (Guidion) is also, spelled Gideon."

      The above census indicates that Nancy was born in 1799. If that is true she would have been 12 years old when she married Adam Hatton.
