Has anyone seen a document or proof that specifically names Coleman Brown's wife as Nancy Wilhoit?
There was a Coleman Byron Brown (1815-1873) who married a Nancy Wilhoit/Wilheit (1816-1872). This couple married 18 Aug 1835 in Morgan Co IN and are both buried at Fairview Cemetery in Tippacanoe Co. IN. She was the daughter of Lameck Wilheite b. 1791. They are on findagrave.
What might have led people to believe that Coleman Brown (b. 1770 VA, d. in Gallatin/Saline Co IL ) married a Nancy Wilhoit is the US and International Marriage Records 1560-1900 that pop up on ancestry.com. There isn't really any info on that record that I seen that says anything other than their names. I am led to believe that this record is for Coleman Byron Brown of IN.
