About Nancy E. Thomas:

Nancy was nothing like her husband John Caffey. Possessions were not important to John what he had he would freely give. Not so of Nancy she didn't covet material things either, but she carried a stubborn sense of right that made her stick up for her way time and again. When she took offense, she said so in plain terms and clear tones that left no one in doubt. When Nancy had not heard from John for months, she went asking after him in town. When she learned that he was ill, she took Edgar and the wagon and made a two hundred mile journey overland to Chattanooga. She hauled him back to the familiar hills of home fed him up and cared for him until he was well.
