Pedigree for Joseph Michael Flint
     Nancy Curtis was born circa 1765 at Maryland. Dyer in Steinseiffer family, Germany to America say she was born c 1760 in Virginia. The 1850 Census says c 1770 in Maryland. I have split the dates in the middle.2,3

Nancy Curtis married John Stonecypher, son of John Heinricus Stonecypher, in 1783 at Wilkes County, North Carolina.4,3

On 4 October 1850 Nancy Stonecypher was enumerated in the household of John Stonecypher on the 1850 U. S. census for District No 32, Franklin County, Georgia as Nancy Stonecypher, 80 years old, birthplace of Maryland. Also enumerated in the household were Nancy Stonecypher and Cathatin Hamilton.2

On 5 March 1851 at Franklin County, Georgia, Nancy Stonecypher, widow of John Stonecypher, applied for the balance of his Revolutionary War pension from the last payment on 4 September 1850 until his death on 16 December 1850.5

Nancy Curtis died between 5 March 1851 and 19 January 1852 at Franklin County, Georgia. She was still living on 05 Mar 1851 when she applied for her husband's final pension payment. If she had been still living by 19 Jan 1852 she would have received a share of her husband's estate. That she died in Franklin county is a guess but a safe one in my opinion.5,6
