Nancy appeared in the 1870 census, living in Logansport, Cass County, Indiana, with her husband James Matthews (Presbyterian minister). The family lived in the James Matthews Presbyterian Academy, and had children Lizzie (23 years old), Mary (21 years old), Robert B. (19 years old), Annie (17 years old), and a number of servants and students. One of the students was a Robert S. Forbes (16 years old, born in Indiana), who was probably the same Robert S. Forbes who was the son of Nancy's brother Andrew. Daughter Lizzie was born in Ohio, while Mary, Robert B. and Annie were all born in Kentucky.
Nancy appeared in the 1880 census, living in San Francisco, California, with her husband James Matthews (clergyman) and daughters Lizzie (30 years old) and Annie (25 years old, music teacher). Lizzie had married a John McCarthy (collector), and they resided in the household along with their children Alfred, Bessie and a yet unnamed three-month-old daughter. Willa John, a Chinese servant, also resided in the household. The census reveals that Lizzie was born in Ohio, while Annie was born in Kentucky.
