I am looking for the parents of Nancy Jane Shook and Elizabeth Shook both married James Green.  James and Nancy were married, had a daughter named Rachel.  They they divorced and James married Nancy's sister Elizabeth.  They had 2 children, Bettie and Isaiah.  The family lived in Missouri.  Around Phelps county.  Any information would be appreciated!  Thank you!

When roughly would the sisters have been born?   Here's an 1870 census record from Phelps County, Missouri showing a 17-year old Nancy J Shook living with her family (parents Aquella and Elizabeth).   I don't see an Elizabeth as a sister.   But, if I look at the actual census record, it looks like there's a sister named "Mary E" (perhaps Mary Elizabeth?).  The index lists her as Mary L, but I think the L may actually be an E if you look at the record closely.

Could this be them?   Is this the right time period?

If Nancy Jane was born in the early 1850s, I think this is her:

1870 census with Nancy at 17 with parents Aquella Shook (born 1823, North Carolina) and Elizabeth (born around 1825, North Carolina):


Nancy Jane Green (post-divorce) remarries Logan McDaniel in Phelps County, Missouri:


1880 census with Logan (mispelled Loyon) and Nancy together, including step-daughter Rachael Green in the household.


Hopefully, either this or Frank Gill's find will help with your question.
