In 1900, Pensacola, Yancey
County, Samuel
Robertson had a
daughter "Nancy C.", age 15 (by
prior wife Eliza McMahan). At the
next house resided
William H.
McMahan.  (W. H. McMah
on
witnessed the marriage of J. H. Allen
and Catherine Robinson, age 17, in
Yancey County, in 1901.) Despite
the name variations, are these the
same?
