My grandfather, Edwin Edward Nall, was born in West, MS 15 May 1873. His father was John Marion NALL and his mother was Rebecca Louisa (Lucy) JOHNSON, daughter of E. S. JOHNSON. I have a great deal of information on the Nalls (but can always use more!), but I cannot find anything on the JOHNSON family. John Marion and Lucy had 7 children: Robert B., John T., E. E., Lillie/Lillye, Mary Nancy, Carl Richard, and Arthur. These children were born between 1867 and 1881. John Marion died in 26 January 1882, and Lucy died 19 January 1885. When Lucy died the oldest child was 18, and the youngest was only 4.
John Marion was also married prior to this to a woman named Cornelia. No one in the family knows what her last name was. She and John Marion were parents of twins, Mary and Willy, and of one other child. Nothing more is known about this marriage or the children.
Rev. Berry NALL, father of John Marion, settled in the Holmes/Yazoo counties area prior to 1871.
If there is anyone who connects or who has information on this family, I would appreciate hearing from you.
