Brick Wall of the Month: Nancy Campbell

My brick wall of the month for June is Nancy Campbell.

We know very little about Nancy. We know from census information that she was born in or near Elberton, Elbert County, Georgia, about 1794.

We know she married Basil Brawner about 1810, still living in Elbert County, but by 1820 the family had moved to Blount County, Tennessee.

In 1870, Nancy was living in Kentucky, and she evidently died there, in 1876.

But who were her parents? Where did they come from? How long had this branch of the family been in America?

I’m having a particularly difficult time with researching Nancy because her name is so common. I have poked around on ancestry.com, but haven’t found anything.

If you have any suggestions or thoughts of where I might look next, please pass them along. Thanks!
