You have to read a census card correctly. Sarah Barnett's mother (cc#878) was Nancy Marshall. Sarah Barnett was married to Simon Barnett, Cato Davis' half brother. Hager Marshall was Cato's mother. Hager Marshall and Nancy Marshall were in-laws.
In regards to Nancy Murrell (Morrill), she was born free but placed on the Dunn roll. She was a by blood according to the front and back of Kellop Murrell's census card #858 to make it clear what she was, no Owner. Because Nancy's family were slaves she was placed on the freedmen roll.
Also there is no testimony from a by blood relative on the Dawes Creek final roll that Nancy was a by blood to enable her to be placed on the by blood roll.
