  1. 1.  Unicy was born on 21 Nov 1766 in North Carolina.


    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.
