From a Memoriam entry on Find A Grave: Memorial #34563065 Nancy Adcock Cantrell

Honoring the daughter of Leonard Adcock 1745 – 1831 and Jane Cantrell 1760 – 1827. She was the second wife of Isaac Cantrell. Many researchers confuse her with Isaac's first wife, Nancy Cantrell, who was the daughter of American Patriot Thomas Cantrell 1761 – 1830, DAR Ancestor Number A018963, and Elizabeth Norris 1765 – 1830

The above Find a Grave and memoriam is for Nancy (Adcock) Cantrell (1790 - 1872) This profile is for the other Nancy Cantrell that is mentioned who is daughter of Thomas Cantrell and Isaac's 1st wife

Either the FG memorial and dates of birth and date are not correct, or the parents are not correct on this profile. Careful research and documentation is needed to get this straight. Too many marriages between different Cantrell families are occurring in this lineage.
