Third Generation

9. Harvey IRWIN was born on 4 September 1834 in Clermont County, Ohio.1,18 He died on 8 May 1922 at the age of 87 in Schuyler County, Illinois.1

I wonder if Harvey's wife was perhaps named Margaret Ann and she was called "Nancy" prior to her marriage. The marriage license gives her name as Nancy A. I find no other marriage for Harvey in Illinois, yet his wife was listed as Margaret in all the censuses. Nancy was the accepted nickname for Ann. Her tombstone has Nancy M. wife of Harvey Irwin.
