Nancy was born about 1770. She passed away sometime after the 1830 census enumeration, probably in Covington county, Alabama. Her maiden name MIGHT have been Bass as Thomas Franklin and Willson Bass are found in several records together in Pulaski County, GA, and both ended up in Covington county, AL. It is also possible that Nancy was a relative or sister of Wilson Bass' wife whose name is as yet unknown. I suspect her son Willson Franklin is likely named for Willson Bass.
