#29 - Nancy Ann Acre, Photos in Old Age

Nancy Ann Acre (#28), mother of Anderson Gray (#14) - The photo on top shows Nancy with some unnamed descendants. Wouldn't it be great if one of them were Anderson Gray (#14)! Hopefully someone can help us identify the people in the photo. 

Nancy was married to Michael Gray(#28) for about five years before they divorced. We don't think of divorce as a frequent occurrence in the mid-1800's, but during the Martin County, Indiana Circuit Court session in which Nancy and Michael divorced (court was held about every 3 months), there were at least five divorces granted in Martin County. Three months after her divorce, Nancy married Moses Denney. They had many children together. See another post for a transcription of Nancy's obituary.
