Looking for Nancy Joiner's Parents

Who were Nancy Joiner's parents?
Very little is known of Nancy, but I have determined these few facts. From various census records, we know that Nancy was born ca 1809 and was part Choctaw Indian. She married Lawerance M. Manning and they lived in Stewart County.
After Lawerance died on 7 Oct 1849, We find that in the 1850 census, Nancy had 1 Negro slave girl age 19 living with her. In 1860 she was living with her daughter Mary Jane Manning Stalls and her husband William FBC Stalls.
There is no other information about Nancy. She was my gr gr great grandmother. I do not know when she died or if she ever remarried.
Speculation is that Nancy's father may have been Roderick Joiner who died in Stewart County in 1833. Court records show that Nancy's husband Lawerance had a administrators bond for one Roderick Joiner 2 Nov 1833.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
