Birth 18 MAR 1744 • Virginia, Death OCT 1806 • Grass Valley, Knox, Tenn (an unknown location as of this date) He did receive a 100 acres of land warrant as a result of serving in the Revolutionary War. His ancestry site is pretty garbled up at this point, and I'll try to straighten it out (on my tree) by his birthday in March!
The clothes that were being worn by women in the 1830's are possibly what Nancy would have also worn.
Fashion drawings show big sleeves!
And undergarments would help every lady have the right support!
Three children are listed on "Find a Grave" site with her and their markers.
Martha Cannon Nelson (1764 - 1862)
William Cannon (1771 - 1868) (father of Cyntha Cannon Rogers)
Robert Cannon (1781 - 1854)

Another thought about dates...the Gregorian Calendar was mentioned back on Nov 16 HERE.
And it didn't state when or how the British changed their calendars...So here's some more info (and keep in mind England also changed it's "New Year date" from March 25 to Jan. 1.)
"In England and Wales, the legal year 1751 was a short year of 282 days, running from 25 March to 31 December. 1752 began on 1 January. To align the calendar in use in England to that on the continent, the Gregorian calendar was adopted: and the calendar was advanced by 11 days: Wednesday 2 September 1752 was followed by Thursday 14 September 1752. The year 1752 was thus a short year (355 days) as well.. Source Wikipedia
