Buried in the Old Salem Cemetery in Giles County are Nancy Faught[1769-1849],Samuel Faught [1790- 1857] and Wiley B. Faught[1799-1841]. I believe they were mother and sons.I believe she is the wife of William Faught,who lived circa 1760s-1830s. Sometimes inaccurate tax and census records show William's wife was 21+ in 1816;26-45 in 1820;and 40-50 in 1830.
Nancy was in Giles County when she died in 1849. Searching Faught house holds in the last census before she died [1840], did not turn up anyone her age.However, in the house hold in the Salem Church neighborhood near the Faughts was an elderly female between 70-79 years old.She was living with Joseph Inman,age 60-69 and his wife,age 40-49. In the 1850 census Joseph has left Giles County, or perhaps passed away.
The Inman/Faught connection was very strong within the Samuel and Wiley B.Faught family.Samuel was a neighbor of a James Inman on Lick Creek in Hickman County, TN. in 1808, and a Joseph Inman signed the bond for Samuel's marriage to Nancy Dean Faught in Williamson County,TN,in 1810.Shortly thereafter, a William, John, Isham and Moses Faught appear in War of 1812 Hickman County militia along with the Inmans. Issac Inman married a Faught from this family and,in the 1850 Giles County Census,there was a James C. Inman , age 29,married to Wiley B. Faught's daughter, Francis,age 28. Living with them is Francis' brother,Plesant M Faught.---
Has any Faught/Inman family researcher : [1] determined if Nancy was William Faught's wife? [2] Was she living in the Joseph Inman household upon her death in 1849?
