Does any of this connect with your GA to Tenn Nash family???....

Excerpt from info put together by Ron Jones (if you know how to reach him I'd like to get back in touch w/ him).....
This excerpt starts w/ James Nash son of William and Betty (Hardwick) Nash of colonial Culpepper County, VA:

5. JAMES5 NASH (WILLIAM4, WILLIAM3, WILLIAM2, WILLIAM1)4
James Nash was born July 06, 1739 in Orange Co., Va5, and died December 13, 1806 in Pendleton District, SC5. He married ANN JENKINS December 09, 1765 in Culpeper, daughter of THOMAS JENKINS. She was born February 20, 1736/37 in Culpeper, Va5, and died March 28, 1810 in Abbeville, SC.

Notes for JAMES NASH:
James is listed as being born in Orange Co. However, the William Nash farm was in St. Mark's Parrish in the Great Fork of the Rappahannock - where several counties converge (Orange, Culpeper, Fauquier, Spotsylvania, & Stafford). He was the oldest child and became head of the household at an early age. He was the executor of his father's estate and later Betty Nash's will was administered by James Nash, 1772 in Culpeper, Va.

James was appointed Lt of District in Culpeper and was listed in the Virginia colonial Militia 1751-1766 as a foot soldier (Note: that I think it is doubtfull that this is our James Nash son of Wm and Betty Nash, since he was born in 1739 -- Len R.)

The following listing is made in the DAR Patriot Index - Centennial Edition
James Nash: b 6-6-1739 VA d 12-13-1806 SC m Ann Jenkins PS VA
James was 36 when the Rev War started in 1775. He served as a private in the artillery in Va. His service records are documented in the U.S. Archieves. He is also listed by Brumbaugh in Revolutionary War Records vol I, VA, p208 and by Gwathmay in Virginians in the Revolution, p 577. The service of James Nash has been approved by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution.

He was still on the taxpayer list in Culpeper for 1783, but soon thereafter moved his family to the Pendleton District. He appears in the 1790 Census of SC. {He was given two land grants by SC}

Marriage Notes for JAMES NASH and ANN JENKINS:
According to Chris Bryan, James married Ann Jenkins (daughter of Thomas Jenkins) on Dec 9, 1765 at St. Marks Parish, Va. He says that he has also found 2 other researchers that confirm this. This report is contrary to other reports of his marriage to Ann Hess (Hass). Marlene Wall also believes that James was married to Ann Jenkins.

The Centennial Edition of the NSDAR Patriot Index, has two listings for James Nash. The first James, born in Ma on 4-16-1756 was married to Anna Hess. And the second James was born in Va, 6-6-1739 (died 12-13-1806 SC) was married to Ann Jenkins.

Notes for JAMES NASH:
From "The Early History of Jackson County Georgia" by G.J.N. Wilson: James Nash came with other early settlers to this county where he followed farming nearly all his life. His industrious habits and good management soon enabled him to accumulate a considerable fortune; and being the soul of honor and a Christian gentleman without blemish, he made good use of it. His position at the poplar log showed his physical stength, and he was in every other was equally strong. He settled about four miles below Commerce, on the Clarkesville road, where he built the best and most elegant residence then in the county. It afterwards became a public inn and was favorably known to the traveling public both far and near. This house was totally destroyed by a tornado on Feb 19, 1884. His daughter Mary was fatally wounded and some of the family was seriously hurt.

22 February 1884 The Jackson Herald. Last Tuesday evening, the 19th inst., a cyclone passed about a mile below Jefferson, going in an easterly direction. ... From Mr. Venable's the cyclone passed over the river at Mr. Gailey's farm, on by the Gathright place, and from thence onto the Nash place, crossing the Northeastern Railroad near Nash's tank... from there down into Madison County. Our information of the destruction it accomplished after it crossed the North Oconee River is very meagre, but from what we can learn .... At Nash's the settlement was scattered in every direction. Mrs. Mary Nash, who is very old, got a broken leg and other injuries, from which it is hardly probably she will recover. Mrs. Charlie Nash's head was bruised.

7 March 1884 The Jackson Herald. ....total damage from the storm: number of houses blown down, 55; persons hurt, 11,000; seriously wounded, 21; fatally wounded, 1 [Mrs. Mary Nash].

"The History of Harmony Grove Commerce", T.C. Hardman, pg 16. ....it exactly centered the CT Nash dwelling on the Athens road, on the rise midway between the homes of Dick Standridge and Ed Holland.

Obituary - Christian Index:
Died, June 25th, 1836, at his residence, in Jackson County, James Nash, Esq. aged 67 years. In the death of this excellent man, society has lost one of its brightest ornaments. All who were intimately acquainted with him, can but shed the tear of sympathy, and unite in expressions of condolence with the afflicted family. A sincere friend to the Church, a lover of the cause of Salvation, connected with hospitable mind and urbane deportment. Esq. Nash lived as he died a humble & we trust a true believer in the blessed Jesus. He was given to us, and we were delighted with his company; but now he has gone to enjoy the company of Angels, and chant requiems of praise in the worlds of light. While the family is left to mourn their irreparable loss, these sombrous weeds of sorrow are brightened with the hope that their loss is his eternal gain.



Notes for MARGARET LONG:

From her obituary, we know that Margaret Nash was born in Maryland in 1769 and moved to Jackson County Georgia when she was 19. In 1802 she was baptised into the Cabin Creek Baptist Church.

Margaret Nash is mentioned in Capt Reuben Longs will dated 7 Aug 1837 & probated 21 Mar 1839. It references her as his sister living in Jackson Co.


=================================================================================
From "The Early History of Jackson County Georgia" by G.J.N. Wilson: Mrs. James Nash, nee Margerette Long, was loved and honored by all the people. No being lived, however obscure or mean, that she failed to treat kindly. She was a near relative of Dr. Crawford W. Long, but she died before he became famous. (Dr. Crawford Nash was the first to use an anesthetic during surgery). She and her husband sleep the sleep of the good in plain view of the desolate spot which was once their pleasant home.

Wilson's initials GJN - stand for Gustavus James Nash.

In "The Long Family of Crawford County", Sue Long documents the the Long's of Crawford and then describes the persistent legend that there is kinship between the Long family of Crawford and the Dr. Crawford Long family. Both families came thru Pennsylvania, Abbeville, and then settled in Georgia. James Long came from Scotland, with his son Matthew. Matthew had several children, one was Margaret Long, mentioned in his will receiving land at Long Cane (Cox Plantation - Abbeville). These children eventually settled in Crawford Co, Ga.

===================================================================================

An aged Saint called home.

Those persons who have traveled the road from Athens to Clarksville, must recollect the residence of Mother Nash, immediately on the road, about 14 miles from the former place. This aged saint has been called to her reward, having departed this life about the middle of May last. At the time of her death, Mrs Margaret Nash was one of the oldest citizens of Georgia and one of the longest standing members of the Baptist Church.
She was born in Maryland in 1769. In her 19th year she removed to Jackson County, Ga, to the neighborhood in which she resided for 66 years. In 1802, she was received, by profession and baptism, into the Cabin Creek Baptist Church. - Living in a retired part of the country, and pursuing for many years in the most unostentatous manner the even tenor of her way, the story of her life is told in a very few words. Successive months and years afforded very little variety in her daily vocations. But it is interesting to see a disciple of Christ adoring for more than fifty years, the doctrine of God her Saviour. That must be a divine principle, which can keep the soul inflexible bent upon one grand pursuit through a protracted series of years. Sister Nash has been for more than half a century a consistent member of the Church of Christ. This ample record is her highest eulogy. It is worth incalcuably more than the inflated panegyries which are so frequently pronounced upon the nobles of earth.
God prepared this aged saint for her rest by an affliction peculiarly severe and long continued. About a year prior to her decease, she began to suffer inconvenience and pain from an enlargement immediately under her left arm. Medical aid was sought, but without success. The tumor continued to grow, until cancerous symptoms were decided. The suffering became intense as to deprive her of all natural rest, for many weeks prior to her decease. During this whole period, however, she was remarkably composed. The writer of this notice saw her about two weeks before her death, and was endeavoring to comfort her by the assurances that though she might not understand now why she was so afflicted God would eventually show her that it was wise and merciful. "Yes" she said, "My ways are not your ways, neither are your thoughts my thoughts, saith the Lord." For several days before her death, her conversation was almost entirely in the language of the scriptures. She would say, "I know that my Redeamer liveth; there is laid up for me a crown of ..." "in my Father’s house are many mansions,". At last, calling her servants and children with all the members of her family, she admonished them all in the most affectionate terms and had them meet her in a better world. Perfectly prepared for the summons, she fell asleep in dreams.

Athens, July 6, 1854

"The celebrated Gabriel Nash, Esq, who died in Madison County many years ago.... when Gabriel Nash was a leading lawyer at the bar and such men as Howell and Tom Cobb dreaded his biting sarcasm and his bold assaults, he had a case in court which, in some way involved the estate of a man who had died with the phthisic. In making out his briefs it became necessary for him to use the name of the disease with which the man died. Though frequently used, he invariably wrote the word 'tizic'. Judge Dougherty, a man who always insisted on doing everything precisely right, was on the bench, and ordered Mr. Nash to change his spelling. 'Please your Honor, what difference does it make for a man to die with two h's or without any. He's dead, and that's all there is of it.' He took his seat and nothing more was said."

Notes for JULIUS JANUS NASH:
Name shown in the Abner Nash family bible was Julious Junious Nash.

Leda Nash Bowden provided the following note:
Don's (McPherson) Nash branch comes off of Abner Nash who had the son: Julius Junius Nash that lived just outside of West Monroe, Louisiana. He married three times and had lots of children. Lived on a large plantation, but after the "War of Northern Aggression," some writers say, lost it all. He is buried on a piece of the land that is a Nash Cemetery. The Nash families were large in the South. But the children wouldn't stay on the plantation. Julius was listed as a basket weaver in his later years. How sad!

You might look for the fact that some of the Nash men died quite young. My father, Gilbert Lyles Nash died at 42 year old. He was a pharmacist, graduated: Tulane University, New Orleans. So was his brother, Martin Lee Nash. He died in his 30's. All the Nash men were short except the Newton branch. Most of the taller ones got their height from their mother's line. Don McPherson is not over 5 feet 7 inches. I've lots to tell you, but will try to organize it another time.

Following is what information I have on your g-g-grandfather:
Tucker, Cary W. Company B

Enlisted at Brooksville, Coosa County on March 6, 1862 by Captain James R. Cross for three years or the war. Enlisted at twenty years of age. Captured at the surrender of Vicksburg on July 4, 1863 and paroled July 10th. Furloughed about July 22, 1863 at Enterprise, Mississippi. Name appears on a
title of record, dated January 27, 1864: subject -- court martial. [no details on why. Obviously it was not serious enough to drum him out of service because his name appears on a Receipt Roll for Clothing for 2nd Quarter 1864.]


The above was verified by the service records (46th Ala Co B) of Cary W. Tucker.

Cary Tucker Memory of the Civil War
Home of My Father - Elmore Co, Ala July 30, 1915

While visiting my father C.W. Tucker, who was in the entire war from 1861-1865 (?) as a confederate soldier. He in conversation about his experences, told me, among other things that he in 1861 went to Montgomery Ala and was mustered in Co C (?) 3rd Ala under Capt Davee (?). Thence we were sent to Mobile Ala and were there about 12 months on picket duty. While in Mobile as our headquarters, we served on picket duty in Pensacola Fla, Fort Morgan, and Jacksonville, Fla.
In 1862, the 26th day of April, I with many others joined the regular army which lasted 3 years. We were young and inexperienced men and were sent to Lockapoka to drill. In June we went to Chattanooga Tenn and there joined the Tenn Army. We were then placed in the 46th Ala, Reg’t of Co B, Val (?). I remained in this Co and Reg’t until Jan 1864 when the 46th Ala Reg’t and the 23rd Ala Reg’t were consolidated. It was then known as the 23rd Ala Reg’t Co F. I fought in a number of battles, among them Ressacco Battles, Cumberland Gap (here we met the enemy and captured the entire force). After the battle of Cumberland Gap, we marched to Louisville Ky. Next was the Battle of Crab Apple at Louisville Ky. We then proceeded to Perryville, Ky. We had an engagement; we retreated to big Creek Gap; we then marched to Knoxville, Tn and there hibernated. The next engagement was at Dalton Ga, where we won a decisive battle; we then marched to Miss. Fort Hudson, retreated. Beseiged at Vicksburg and surrendered July 4th 1864.
I was captured 5 times, exchanged 3 times and escaped once. One time as 3 yankees had me under arrest, two of whom had gone aside for a few minutes, some of my friends, my comrades, fired on the soldier in charge of me and I heard them call out to me to run. I did so and found them hidden nearby. We then escaped. (The yankee fell dead.) During the war, I was wounded 5 times. That is I have 5 scars on me now that was caused by wounds received in battles.
I am anxious to keep those records and papers and should anything happen to me, I want someone of my brothers or sisters to take care and keep them. The old soldiers are now very few and while we all love our relatives, especially our fathers and mothers. We should feel an especial pride in a father who fought and bled for the cause they thought just and which we feel now was right. I am attaching herewith papers which will show that father was an honorable soldier and while he was a private in the ranks yet we see he volunteered and as he is now 72 years old he must have been very young. He was born April 5, 1842. That makes him on this day 73 years 3 mons and 26 days old.

Done in my law office. This the 31st day of July 1915.
