Goldie Sullens and Virginia Sears stated that Nancy Ellen Hook was born in Belgique, Missouri, which is near Crains Island, Illinois. Crains Island was considered to have migrated closer to the Missouri side of the Mississippi River, although it was still part of Illinois. A flood after 1930 joined Crains Island to the land of Missouri. Since Crains Island residents moved to the new land deposited toward the Missouri side of the river, the residents were included in the Bois Brule, Missouri censuses.
