    Interesting site. I, and many others, are descended from Nancy M. Shearer Truitt. According to those who lived closest to her in later life, Nancy died 1865 in Franklin Co., Texas where she was living with her second husband, John Rabine, a German immigrant, and their two sons, Henry and Spencer Marion. Near her lived a couple of her brothers and their families. At least one brother, Spencer, has a marked grave. Also living nearby were two of her grown daughters, including Susannah Elizabeth Truitt Connally. Her photo is posted on Ancestry. The Dufner Family (Wayne and Barbara) have posted photos of Nancy’s son with Isaac Truitt, Perminter Morgan Truitt. In his pension papers, P.M. Truitt mentions Nancy’s family bible. If anyone has information about it, I’d love to hear back. Thanks.
