NANCY HENDRIX/HENDRICKS

Nancy (maiden name unknown) was my great-great Grandmother.  Nancy was born in 1832 and she married a man from Georgia by the name of HENDRIX.  She was widowed by 1870 & living in Sebastian County Ark. with two HENDRIX children, LEROY "LEE" born ca.1862/66 in MO. & FRANCES K. "FANNIE" born in June 1868.  Also in the home is a CATHERINE CARTWRIGHT, born ca.1857 in Texas, no data on her relation to others.  Nancy ? may first have been married to a CARTWRIGHT, then married ? HENDRIX. By 1873, as gathered from Probate Court records, ZACCARIAH COLLINS has been appointed guardian of the two children and posted bond at $1200 for each child.  Nancy has considerable property & personal belongings in 1870 but none listed in the 1880 census where here she is listed as NANCY COLLINS and living in the home of ISAAC MOODY, born 1831 in North Carolina.  Also living in the home with the widow, ISAAC MOODY, is his son ANDREW MOODY, age 18, born ca. 1862 in Georgia.  Was maiden name MOODY?  Was ISAAC MOODY her brother?  Did she marry and divorce ZACCARIAH COLLINS before 1880?   Other names to consider associated with her are BURKE/ANDERSON/RYAN/COLLINS/WALKER/FORD/.
I know this is a puzzle with a lot of missing pieces therefore any clues, no matter how small,  would be greatly appreciated!
