Nancy Elizabeth or Nannie (Hunt) Krise

Nancy Krise

Nancy Krise was a sister to my great grandma, Isabella Cummings Hunt. The information above fits into what I know about Isabella's family. Isabella married one William John Hamill, who was first married to her older sister, Silvia Crossman Hunt. William John had also attended Jefferson College. Both Silvia and Isabella studied at Mt Pleasant Seminary for girls. Maybe other sisters did, as well, though I don't know this.

When she was still a girl, (I believe it was when her mother, Eliza, died) she moved in with Silvia and William John. When she was 18, she snitched her sister's husband, and the two eloped. They had 16 children...two stillborn, three died as infants, but 11 survived to adulthood. My grandma, Daisy Hunt Hamill, was the 16th child.
