Yes, the birth record on Family Search is for her daughter.
I have been fortunate to find many records pertaining to her children, including birth, death, and marriage records. But nothing pertaining to her or her husband prior to her moving to Toledo.
I had never heard of Greenfield, Ohio until looking at Florence's death certificate. I always thought Nancy may have been from Springfield, OH due to me being given old family albums and there being lots of pictures of visits to Springfield and my Great Grandmother (Florence's daughter who died when I was 19) telling me that they went there to visit relatives.
So I have been trying to locate information about the city and Highland County. I did find a record of a Nancy JONES working as a domestic in Greenfield on the 1860 census but am not sure that is her due to the common surname.
I have found out that Highland County was a hot bed of underground railroad activity so I don't know if there have been any publications about that either in book form or in newspapers.
