I know of 3 daughters that should have been born in this time period - Mahulda, Leah, & Sarah but this census shows 4. Probably Huldah & Leah are the two girls under 5.

1850, Carroll Co, Household 305. John W. Maybry age 55. Nancy age 48. Andrew J. 17, Huldah 15, Leah 13, and John F. age 11.

I believe John Wesley may have left Nancy in Carroll County and gone off with one of his sons. I found him living with Levi and his family in Morgan Co KY in the 1860 Census. The sons Calvin & Andrew were also in Morgan Co in 1860. In 1860, Nancy was living as head of household with Leah still at home, back in Carroll Co VA. They were working as cake bakers.

In 1880, in Piper Gap District of Carroll Co is the Poor House. John Mabry, age 85, was a resident - a pauper. Nancy was living with a daughter in 1880.

John Wesley MABRY and Nancy DALTON were married in October 1819 in Grayson County, Virginia.54 Nancy DALTON49,54,55, daughter of John DALTON and Eleanor EDWARDS, was born in 1800 in Virginia.49 She died on 1 February 1887 at the age of 87 in Carroll County, Virginia.38

Nancy was the daughter of John Dalton.

I believe John Wesley went out "west" with one or more of his sons and left Nancy behind in Carroll Co. In 1860, she was head of household, age 60. Living with Nancy was daughter Leah age 21 and a nine-month-old boy whose name was Robert McN.

In 1870, Nancy Maberry, age 68, was living with S. Jennings, probably her daughter Sarah.

Also in this census, living in the Poor House as a Pauper, is a John Mabry age 85.
