See 1870 Marshall County Census [NA Series M593, Roll 1546, page 58]
for the correct spelling of Narcissa Gragg's surname. She was enumerated
as age 12 in the household of Joseph Gragg and probable wife, Hannah.
In the 1870 Census [NA Series M593, Roll 1546, page 61] the I. N. Endsley
household was enumerated as showing him as "Newton," 61, Sarah 45,
Nancy 15, Wm 13, Mattie 10, and M. B. Ladd, F, 65 [Sarah's Mother?]
In the 1880 Census [(LDS source) NA T9-1269, page 366C] the "Isaac N.
Endsley" household enumeration shows: Isaac N. Endsley 71, Sallie 56,
William 23, Martha J. 20, Narcissa E. Endsley (daughter-in-law) 19,
Thomas W. Endsley (grandson). Nancy is gone from the household
But, the next census entry shows: Thomas H. Kennedy 29, Nancy E. L.
Kennedy 26, Martha S. Kennedy 5.
Thomas H. Kennedy posted a marriage bond 16 Sep 1871 to marry
Nancy E. L. Endsley but the certification of the solemnization of the
Rite of matrimony is not signed.
Item from page 4, Marshall Gazette, Lewisburg, Tennessee 15 Jul 1875:
"Mr. Newt Endsley, near Belfast, had his arm amputated last Saturday.
For many years he had been suffering from a cancer on his hand. It
finally became so painful and offensive that he resolved to resort to the
knife in order to get rid of it. Dr. Nowlin, assisted by other physicians,
performed the operation."
"Newt" apparently had begun to put his affairs in order even earlier:
From the Index to Marshall County Deed Books:
1873: Endsley, I. N. to S. M. Endsley GIFT ( 197 acres)
1873: Endsley, I. N. & wife to J. B. Endsley : 4 acres DB Y, p. 94
1875: Endsley, I. N. to Jas. W. Coffey 50 & 56/100 acres
DB Y, p. 524
1882: Endsley, I. N. to N. E. L. Kennedy, 50 acres DB B-2, p. 473.
1882: Endsley, I. N. to N. J. L. Endsley, 48 acres DB B-2, p. 487.
1882: Endsley, I. N. to W. H. L. Endsley, 50 acres DB B-2, p. 488.
On 2 Mar 1883 "Nannie" E. L. Kennedy conveyed 50 acres to J. B.
Endsley. She was examined by the Court Clerk privately and apart
from her husband, Thomas H. Kennedy. Wording of the deed
confirms that "Nannie" Kennedy was Nancy E. L. Endsley, daughter
of Isaac Newton Endsley and Sarah M. Ladd. [Marshall County
Deed Book C-2, page10].
NOTHING FURTHER KNOWN ABOUT NANCY E. L. ENDSLEY.
