Nancy Paralee Nance , I was scanning 7 ran across another listing but with birth & death dates & cemetery location in Texas , it may be a coincidence the other # is 64426213 with Spring Hill cemetery Titus co, Texas. Just an FYI.

If you are on Facebook I run a NANCE surname group where we have quite a few members (abt 175) if your interested We have had a few find cousins they didn't know they had.. anyone is welcome, but being a NANCE researcher is required.

Hello Eileen,

Hope the holidays went well for you. I wanted to let you know I am planning a trip to Independence County Arkansas for February and hoping nothing prevents this trip. I am going there for the sole purpose of trying to get documented parentage for George Nance. I already have 2 contacts there who are willing to help me research once i am there. Wish me luck!

RE: Henry Clay Nance
I will see what I can find out. I currently live in Carthage, TX about 100 miles or so south of Cason/Daingerfield. Honestly I don't remember anyone other than my Mother's brother and half siblings. When both her parents passed away she moved in with her half sister Sarah Collins in Azle, TX. She met my dad, who is from Ft. Worth, TX and that is where they raised us kids. We did visit from time to time but not as often as my Mom would have liked. We would stay with Oscar,Jr & his wife Betty at the house that Ettie Mae's family had owned (They still own that house). When I last spoke to my Aunt Betty, she said that she thought that Dock Nance was still alive but she really didn't know much about the Nance side of the family.

RE: George Washington Nance
Oh I am saddened that the info I have is incorrect. It's actually my mom who was a Nance but unfortunately she passed almost 21 years ago and her brother soon after. She never really spoke about her family and I think it was because she was in her early teens when her parents passed. Everything I know I have found on my own. My moms name is Georgia Faye. Since Henry Clay married Ettie Mae and she had children from a previous marriage, they do not know much about his family. I do have an Aunt Betty Haygood and her family still there and I have visited with her but she only knows about the Haygood side. She married Oscar Haygood jr, who is the son of Ettie Mae and Oscar Haygood, sr, her first husband. I have only one pic of my grandparents and nothing more. It really breaks my heart not knowing so much. My whole life I only knew their names.

RE: Lonnie Nance
I have a copy of George's death certificate that lists Thomas Nance & Nannie Reeves as his parents. But i don't think Nannie Reeves is accurate. I think this refers to his wife Nancy Reeves.
In my research I have come across a Thomas Nance (1801-1879) & Phoebe Jane Yarbrough (1841-1900), married around 1870. This was his 3rd marriage.
Being that Thomas Nance died in 1879 and George (1870-1947 born in 1870 there is not a census to link them. The other children that I have found were James Madison (1873-1936) & Mary Lotella (1878-1956)(m. William T Nolan) I did however find an 1880 census for Caney, Independence, Arkansas that lists C.I. Nance as a widow and her children of G.W.(George Washington), J.M.(James Madison), & M.A.(Mary) Nance. I know there seems to be some mistakes in there such as the initials of C.I. is nothing like P.J. but when looking at the actual document the "I" really looks like a J and C sounds like C, so there could have been some communication issues on this. Also I know Mary's middle name does not start with an A but is Lotella.
So with all of that I have been working on this direction in my research. I also found Lonnie's death certificate online today and found out he had a terrible last few years. If you would like copies of the death certificates that I have just let me know where to send them. I have found them all online. :)

Could that be the son of George & Nancy Nance? My grandfather was Henry Clay Nance.
