Name: Nancy PING
Given Name: Nancy
Birth: 1760 in Culpepper, VA
Death: abt. 1850 in KY
Nancy Ping, daughter of John Ping, Sr. and Margaret unk., married John Brown (b. abt. 1769 in Ireland)on June 27, 1789 at Lincoln Co.,KY.
Nancy Ping's first husband, John Brown, had "served under Gen. George Rogers Clark in the Revolutionary War-he died in 1811).
Nancy and John Brown had 3 children:
Halbert E. Brown b. 1804 in KY and d. abt. 1863 in AR-he m. Susanah "Susan" Burk;
William Brown b. 1801 in Wayne Co., KY and m. Phebe Burk (sister to Susan)in Dec., 1822 in Wayne Co., KY (brothers Halbert and William married sisters, Susan and Phebe on same day in 1822;
and Robert Brown b. abt. 1800 in Wayne Co., KY and m. Nancy ? abt. 1827 in KY.
(Notes for John Brown =- he immigrated from Ireland to what is now Wythe Co., VA and then to Wayne Co., KY by 1789; a website showing descendant of http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/c/r/u/Edward-L-Crump-Jr/GENES8-0001.html).
Following John Brown's death in 1811, Nancy Ping Brown married #2 in Dec., 1814 to Robert Anderson (b. 1763 York Co., PA-served as pvt. in Revolution for VA line, seeing action in several battles and skirmishes). Robert Anderson died in 1841 in Pulaski Co., KY, and it was on the basis of his service in the military that Nancy Ping Brown Anderson later received a pension.
In pension records Nancy Ping Brown Anderson noted that she "had several children by her first husband, including at least one daughter" (we don't know the name or how long this daughter lived).
Nancy's second husband, Robert Anderson, apparently followed Daniel Boone to KY and located in Wayne CO, where his son, Halbert Anderson, was born on Aug. 12, 1804 (source: Goodspeed's History of Benton, Washington, Carroll, Madison, Crawford, Franklin and Sebastian Counties of Arkansas, Vol. #R.A976.7G). This is discrepancy with other GEDCOM files, which indicate that Halbert was the son of Nancy Ping and first husband, John Brown.
[source: Gardiner Family Tree - email@example.com]: "Nancy may have been the first child of John Ping, Sr. She was born about 1760 in VA and lived to a ripe old age of at least 95. We know this from her pension record when she appeared in county court in Whitley Co., KY to amend her previous pension declaration. At that time she stated that it was not convenient for her to go to Pulaski Co. where she first applied, because of age and distance. She gave her age at this time as 93. A later entry to her pension record showed that she was still living in April of 1855". The last years of her life she was living near Sarah Bullock (her niece, Sarah Ping Bullock, prob. daughter of John Ping, Sr.)in Whitley Co., and who declared that she was 88 years, had moved from VA to KY in 1783 and settled near Crab Orchard. This would mean that Sarah Ping Bullock was born abt. 1767 in VA, and emigrated from VA to KY with her father, John Ping, and mother, Margaret Ping, and siblings in 1783 (apparently extended family of her grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. emigrated at same time from Va to KY).
