An obituary for James W. Nalls, who died at the age of 77, appeared in the MANASSAS JOURNAL of 16 September 1921. That yields a birthdate of 1843-1844, which agrees with the 1900 census date of January 1844. The article is headed "JAMES W. NALLS DEAD: Confederate Veteran Passes Away at His Home Near Antioch." It says this:
"James W. Nalls died September 6 at his home near Waterfall, at the age of 77. He had been in ill health for a number of years, but the direct cause of his death was thought to have been a fall which he sustained five weeks ago.
"Mr. Nalls was a Confederate veteran and served throughout the war between the states as a member of the Eighth Virginia infantry. He was born in Fauquier county January 1, 1844, and had been a member of the Gaineville M. E. Church for a number of years. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Lucy L. Nalls, of Antioch, and nine [sic] children, James D. Nalls, of Gainesville; Morgan W. Nalls, of West Falls Church; Mrs. Jennie Bause, of Antioch; Mrs. Dora Byroad, of Arlington; Mrs. Lula Tingstrum, of Clarendon; Mrs. Bettie Leathers, Mrs. Eva Thompson and John H. Nalls, of Washington. He also leaves three brothers and one sister, Mr. Richard Nalls, of Manassas; Mr. Jackson Nalls, of Spencer, N. C., and Mrs. Lena Corneil, of Mount Ranier, Md.; twenty-five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
"Funeral services were held at Antioch on September 9 by Rev. T. D. D. Clark, of Manassas. The pallbearers were: Messrs. Archie Nalls, Levi Nalls, Ashby Nalls, William Nalls and Albert Leathers."
[I believe that the unlisted "ninth" child is Craven J. Nalls. Richard Nalls, listed as a brother, was -- I believe -- a half-brother.]
