BirthMary Elizabeth Hooper was born on 2 March 1845 at Humphreys, Tennessee; conflicting information; this Mary Ann Hooper married Patrick Welch; they appear in the 1870 and 1880 Humphreys County censuses; in 1880 Mary Ann reported both parents born in Tennessee, as did Mary Elizabeth Bateman. One of the two Mary Hoopers was the daughter of James Hooper, b. 1800 SC, and Sally, b. 1800, KY; I have assumed that Mary Ann was their daughter and that Mary Elizabeth was the daughter of James and Nancy, wife of Bateman.3,2

Birth*Nancy Curtis was born circa 1787 at Randolph, North Carolina; Nancy most likely was the daughter of Benjamin's wife Sally from her prior marriage, although Benjamin's will refers to her as his daughter.1 
Land Sale On 5 November 1827 Nancy Curtis and Benjamin Curtis Sr. sold land at Williamson, Tennessee, Deed of gift from Benjamin Curtis to "my beloved daughter Nancy Wadkins" dated 5 November 1827, the same month he filed his will, in which he gave her a negro aged 12-13 years, perhaps a second negro aged 4 years (hard to read), a bridle and saddle, and something else I can't read. Nancy Wadkins is not named in his will. Deed was registered 18 August 1828.
An Adam Wadkins appears in the 1830 census, and there is an 18 Dec 1806 Williamson County marriage record for Nancy Davis and Adam Wadkins. I did not find the couple in the 1850 census. Owen Wadkins and the eldest female were both born between 1780 and 1790, according to the 1830 census.1
