I'm not on that often anymore either. I do have more family tree information if you want it on the Nicholson and Walker side. Elizabeth "Eliza" Susan Nicholson, Edward C VanNess's wife. My GrGr Grandparents.
Anyway Elizabeth was the Daughter of Oliver Perry Nicholson and Rebecca "Becky" Ann Walker.
Oliver Perry Nicholson was the son of Rufus Nicholson and Catherine Garret
Rebecca Walker was the daugher of Anthony Silas Walker and Sarah Westner.
I have more if you want it.
|Tammy Tab Post||My Great Great Grandfather|
Edward Chancellor VanNess was my Great Great Grandfather.
His Son Walker Nicholson VanNess is my Great Grandfather, I New him quite well, he would tell me stories when I was a girl until he died in 1977 He was hit by a car (hit and run) and died shortly there after.
Walker N VanNess lived in the house my mom now lives in and after the hit and run he lived behind the house my great Aunt Mary lived in, in her little guest house. Just like you see in the movies he would sit me on the floor in-front of him and tell me stories about the family for hours on end, sometimes for days continuing the same story.
I have Edwards sisters death record. His sister was Ida "Star" May VanNess Cherry She also went by her Adopted name of Mason. Edward, Ida and Emma VanNess were all orphaned around 1870 by Yellow fever both parents died as result. Their father was William VanNess born 1830 in Albany New York and died before 1870 in Houston, Harris Texas of Yellow Fever Their mother Mary Catherine "Kate" Wiley was born 1834 in Ohio and died around 1870 in Houston,Harris Texas of Yellow Fever.

|Mom to angels Bo and Chris||Transfers completed|
You can feel free to transfer the Nashes to someone else if you would like to. I transferred them to you so that you could do that if you wanted to. I have no connection to anyone that might be interested in taking them. I hope that they don't decide to delete them, but that is the right of the manager of the memorial...but I am giving up all rights to them..and you can do with them whatever you would like to do.
Thank you... Love, Cecile
