Does anyone have any information about Nancy Jane Hensley, born in 1862 in Martin County, Kentucky?

Nancy Jane Hensley is my great-great-grandmother. The only information I have about her is that she was married to Thomas Justice about 1878 in Martin County, Kentucky. They had six children. Their daughter Molly is my great-grandmother. Molly moved to Pike County, Kentucky, where she met and married my great-grandfather, Albin Hatfield. According to a family story, Molly is part Cherokee, possibly from Nancy Jane's side. Records about Nancy Jane and Thomas are missing; supposedly a fire destroyed the courthouse and all records.

Thanks for all the information. My Albin Hatfield is a different man; my great-grandfather Albin was born in 1875 to Lewis and Sarah Jane. Nancy's info is a great lead. Thanks!
