  • Notes 
    • Also called Audrey; Nancy.

      The Hammonds Family Tree page gives her name as Nancy Alice and adds a "???". It has her birth date as 21 Nov 1766, just as we do.

      A note on their page for her spouse, Jesse Adams, refers to her as "Nancy Alice (Nica)". It's easy to see how "Unicy" could be derived from that.
