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, 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 is yet alive having two children also alive by her whose names are May Jane and Elizabeth Ann, Orron, Eliza now wife of Wm. Lucas, Flora, and Jesse T. Stingley. These last four heirs have sold their interests in said lands in the bill mentioned to your respondent John Tucker and conveyed the same by deed herewith filed marked A and prayed to be taken as part of this answer."
