Hi Douglass,

I am trying to identify the correct age of Nancy Sparrow.

Find a grave lists her as being 23 in 1850

A census lists her as being 40 (or 46) in 1880

Other than the age difference they appear to be the same person.

I noticed on George Washington Sparrows (1824-1893) page you mentioned he married Nancy Sparrow in Boyle Kentucky 1845. I think they are my grandmas great grandparents, I was hoping you had more information.
