When Son Nance was born in 1840, his father, Edward, was 30 and his mother, Margaret, was 25. He had two brothers and four sisters. His possible existence is based on the 1840 United States Federal Census information for Edward H. Nance.

Children of Levi Nicholas Titsworth

In my research of Levi Nicholas Titsworth, I found that he married three times and had eleven children. His first wife was Julia Clementine Daniels and they had nine children. Following her death on March 5, 1873, Levi married Minerva Jane Basham Austin, a widow with one daughter.  Levi and Minerva had two more children. She died several years later, and Levi married Sally Howard. They had no children together.

When Tennessee “Tennie” Parilee Titsworth was born on January 11, 1852, in Bonham, Fannin, Texas, her father, Levi, was 21, and her mother, Julia, was 18. She married Alfred Brazzelton “Braz” Biggerstaff on June 9, 1872, in Fannin County. They had two children during their marriage. To view information about her children, click the following link.

When Wincy Louisa Titsworth was born on May 20, 1855, in Bonham, Texas, her father, Levi, was 24, and her mother, Julia, was 21. She married Early Jackson “Jack” Calk on June 12, 1880, in Castroville, Texas. They had seven children together. To view information about their children, click on the following link. Family Group Sheet for Wincy Louisa Titsworth

Wincy Titsworth Calk with her grandchildren.

Note: Evidently Wincy had previously been married and had a 6 year old son named Levi Carlisle. One undocumented internet source gives the first husband’s name as Bell. However, it is also possible her child was born out of wedlock. I found Wincy and Levi Titsworth (not Bell) on the 1880 United States Federal Census in Atascosa County, Texas living with the John L. McCaleb family. The record states the relationship as “cousins.” Of course, this could mean they are cousins of John McCaleb or his wife, Elizabeth. As mentioned above, the census was taken a very short time before Early and Wincy married. Evidently, Early adopted Levi because he is later uses the name “Calk.”

Wincy died on January 28, 1908, at the age of 52. The location of her death and burial is not known at this time.

When Joseph “Joe” Titsworth was born on October 19, 1857, in Bonham, Fannin, Texas, his father, Levi, was 27 and his mother, Julia, was 23.

Children of John L. and Nancy Jane Leyburn

According to my research, John and Nancy Jane Leyburn had eight children but only six of them have been documented. Using Ancestry.com and the memoir of Jennie Leyburn Harris, History of my family and events of my own life, I have found the following information on each of them,

When Lucy Ann “Annie” Leyburn was born on October 5, 1853, in Edwardsport, Knox, Indiana, her father, John, was 22, and her mother, Nancy, was 19. She married John Blackburn LeBus on October 6, 1872, in Flora, Clay, Illinois. They had 11 children in 23 years. To view information about her children, click on the following link. John B. LeBus FGS – Document

She died on July 16, 1905, in Perry, Noble, Oklahoma, at the age of 51, and was buried in the Grace Hill Cemetery. There is a triple family grave marker for her, J.B., and son, Archie.

When Franklin I. “Frank” Leyburn was born in 1857 in Edwardsport, Knox, Indiana, his father, John, was 26 and his mother, Nancy, was 23. He married Mary Unknown in 1887. I do not know if they had children or when or where Frank or Mary died.

When Mary E. Leyburn was born in 1859 in Edwardsport, Indiana, her father, John, was 28, and her mother, Nancy, was 25. I have found Mary on only one census record – 1860 United States Federal Census record in Edwardsport, Indiana, age one. Perhaps she did not live into adulthood. She was not mentioned in Jennie Leyburn Harris’ memoir.

When Fannie Leyburn was born on October 28, 1860, her father, John, was 29, and her mother, Nancy, was 26. She married William Churchwell Waller on March 14, 1877, in Loudon, Tennessee.
