In the minutes of the Dry Fork Church, we find that Nancy Jones joined on 20 Oct 1843 and was dismissed on 19 Nov 1846. If this is Nancy, she had already married Clayborn before October of 1843. Her brothers Isaac, James, John, Moses, Thomas, are cited often in the church minutes and probably her father - but since her father and a brother were both Isaac Neely Browns, it's impossible to tell. Her sister Rebecca also may be in the minutes.

Nancy Jones, widow, not found in 1860 Phelps Co Census.
