Added by Becky Syphers: She went by the name of Nancy. She was one of 4 or 5 siblings, including a sister Hannah. At lest one of her step daughters was older than she was. I have read John Gilbert's will where he specfied which room in his house which child was to inherit. Interesting family dynamics. His house was on what is now the UCONN Campus and in use until the 1980's.
