The children of the first family of William Stingley with wife Nancy
Tucker are based on a probate record of her father, John Tucker, who died
in early 1858 in Hampshire Co, Va. This was filed prior to Nov 1860 because
Flora Ellen Stingley is not married yet. This record was found and shared
by Gary Tucker, firstname.lastname@example.org. It says:
"The answer of John Tucker, Rachael Tucker, and Eliza Frye to a bill
and chancery filed against them in the Circuit Court of Hampshire County,
Virginia by James Lyons. These respondents, making the usual reservations
to said bill before proceeding to answer the same fully, would claim especially
al benefits which by any possibility could arise in this case, as of specially
plead, of the fact that all the parties in interest in the same are not
made parties defendant to it.
John Tucker, Snr. died about two years ago leaving the following children
to wit: John Tucker, Joseph, Jacob C., Henry, Annis, Martha who is the
wife of John Harris, and Jemima, who is the wife of Wm. Hull. Daniel,
who the bill alleges has not been heard of for seven years, which allegation
is not true, but it is true that over four or five years have elapsed
since he has been heard from by some of the defendants residing in this
county. Eliza Frye, widow of Wm. Frye, said Wm. having died before the
death of said John Tucker, and Rachael Tucker. Nancy, who was a child
of said John Tucker died many years before her father, leaving a husband
by name Wm. Stingley, who is yet alive, and the following children who
are still alive as herein now stated. Malinda, who intermarried with Thos.
Elson, Gilead, Simons, Rachael, now dead but who married Jesse Hawks who

the same by deed herewith filed marked A and prayed to be taken as part
of this answer."
