I have never been able to find the parents of Josiah Nance. His known siblings were: A brother (my g.g.father, Wright Nance) and 2 sisters, Minerva Nance McGowen, and Sarah Nance Tate. Wright and Josiah married sisters (Catherine and Frances DOTY, respectively). Josiah and Wright were born in TN (1825 and 1828), not for sure where Minerva and Sarah were born. Minerva died in OK in 1914. Wright died before 1900 on TX. Josiah was killed in the Civil War. I'm pretty sure Josiah and Wright's parents had other chilldren, possibly by other spouses. I appreciate your site, it has been very helpful, but this has been a brick wall for about 8 years. Any help from anyone would be appreciated.
