I am looking for a Nancy (Willoughby) (Hamler) Savacool/Savercol/Savacool who grew up in Sussex Co., NJ though she was born in North Carolina.

My main line is "Hamler" (often mispelled "Homler") and my Savacool/Savercol/Savacol is Nancy Roxanne (Willoughby)(Hamler) Savacool/Savercol/Savacol . Although she grew up in Sussex County, New Jersey, she was born in the South in 1860-- in North Carolina-- where her mother Mary Jane was married to her father Washington Willoughby. Washington Willoughby was in the Southern Army and he deserted both the military and his wife and child. Abner Hamler was on his way home to New Jersey after fighting for the North in the South. He stopped on his way home in North Carolina and within weeks had married Mary Jane; bringing her and her daughter with him home to Sussex County, New Jersey. In the 1870 Census, Abner was listed as Head of household with Nancy Roxanne *Hamler* (formerly Willoughby) listed as his daughter and Mary Jane (Willoughby) Hamler as his wife. Mary Jane died that year and Abner would marry Mary E. Mabee who recovered Abner's Pension in 1885 after Abner died.

In 1922 Nancy is listed in her half-brother's (David Hamler of Sussex Co., NJ) obituary as "Nancy Savacol," presumably having married.

My problem is that I cannot find hide, nor hair of "Nancy Savacool/Savercol/Savacol " in any Census, from 1900 to 1930! If anyone has any information or ideas, I would deeply appreciate it!

Most gratefully,
Kathleen Hamler Purchase
