!NOTES:Shared research shows that Nancy is a daughter of Robert Johns(t)on of Knox Co., TN. Robert's wife was Rachel Burnett, which explains Nancy's daughter named Rachel Burnett Hensley.
For many years we thought Nancy's father was Samuel Johnson because of an old family letter that said so. However, it appears to be wrong.;
