Notes:

!NOTES:Marty Grant's 3rd Great Grand Aunt.;

!NOTES:Name Mary per 1850 & 1860 census, Jim Cockerham referred to her as Nancy for some reason;

!NOTES:Aaron Wright had an unidentified daughter born ca 1794/1800 with him in 1810 who was gone by 1820. Jim Cockerham (deceased) thought it might be Nancy, wife of William Cockerham. The age fits (Nancy born ca 1798). Consider this (from Jim):
"According to Mrs. Mamie (Cockerham) Thompson, great-grand daughter of this couple, Nancy was a "White" pryor to her marriage, but all Whites in the area have been accounted for. It is probable that the name is "Wright", and Mrs. Thompson had in mind the White family of Richard C. White, which is her line of descent."
- Direct proof would be nice, but for now I'll leave Nancy in the Wright family pending evidence one way or the other;
