     Nancy Hershey was born. She was the daughter of Christian Hershey and Magdalena Heistand Kauffman.

Nancy Hershey1

F, b. 18 November 1852
     Nancy Hershey was born on 18 November 1852 at Pine Creek Twp., Ogle Co., IL.1 She was the daughter of Isaac Hershey and Susan Long. Nancy Hershey lived on 12 July 1860 at Pine Creek Twp., Ogle Co., IL.1
Note: Nancy Hershey, daughter of Isaac and Susan (Long) Hershey was clearly listed, age 7, on the 1860 census, Pine Creek Twp., Ogle County, Illinois. She was not listed in Isaac Hershey's household in the 1870 census (Neosho Falls, Woodson County, KS), however a marriage shortly prior to that date would not be improbable.

This Nancy, daughter of Isaac and Susan Hershey appears in a couple of ancestry.com online genealogies, including Seth Bohm's Family Tree, prepared by sethbohm, in which she is shown married to William Norman Hubble (1840 - 1912) with a daughter Clara Pauline (1876 - 1966); also in the Stacey Riley Family genealogy, prepared by mark provance, showing a marriage to James Robinson, with a son Michael born about 1879, and cites the 1880 census of Carbondale, Jackson County, IL.

Checking the first tree, I find William N. Hubble, born 1840 in Missouri, in Monterey County, California in voter registrations as early as 1886, as well as the 1900 and 1910 censuses of San Antonio Township, widowed farmer, parents born Vermont (1900) or Virginia (1910). A William Hubble, age 40, born in Missouri with parents born in Virginia, is listed in Sacramento County, California on the 1880 census, with apparent 15-year old son William, and no daughter Clara. This same William N. Hubble is included in the Ingram Family Tree genealogy, prepared by waltergina, also on ancestry.com. In this presentation, he was married to Minerva Barnett in 1860, with two sons and a daughter born during 1861 - 1869. His daughter Sarah (1867 - 1941) has a California Death Index listing, showing her mother's maiden name was Salazar.

Checking the Stacey Riley Family genealogy, the parental demographics for that Nancy Robinson are wrong, although the age of 28 is close to correct. The Illinois online marriage index does not list any marriage for a Nancy or Ann Hershey to a Robinson, and the listed marriages for James Robinson(s) do not align with the couple listed in 1880. The online genealogy shows death in California, but the online California death index begins in 1940, and she is not listed in it.

In conclusion, not a single item of documentation that I can find, presented in any of these genealogies or found elsewhere, for any event after the 1860 census, demonstrates that Nancy Hershey survived to adulthood, married, or had any children. DLB 2019.
