Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi .. I found this site by a mutual researcher sending me the link and found it to be a GREAT asset! I enjoy doing family research so much I started collecting all records, pictures and what ever on my surname NANCE, and other variations of spelling NANCES/NANTZ/NANTS ect...

❤ *=^..^=*.❤❤.*=^..^=* ❤

I would be glad to add to or update bio information for that individual or transfer (If not my own relatives) ownership of the ones I have added. ALSO I have sent in hundreds of additions/corrections to memorials. PLEASE SEND NAME & MEMORIAL # with any request or replies to these additions/corrections I have sent.

❤ *=^..^=*.❤❤.*=^..^=* ❤

If I have put a flower on any NANCE/NANTZ/NANTS ect, I probably have info. to share. as I research all these lines. ONLY ON THE NANCE SIDES. PLEASE SEND MEMORIAL # with request, I have put flowers on over 13,000+ memorials. thanks :) I am the admin. of a group NANCE (surname) From Around the World on Facebook for those researching NANCE lines. This is a private group for Nance researchers so you will have to send me a private message to get in.

❤ *=^..^=*.❤❤.*=^..^=* ❤

THANK YOU! To those who fill photo request and those who correct mistakes, and removing duplicates!!

❤ *=^..^=*.❤❤.*=^..^=* ❤

For the rest of you people what's up with you? You don't own any of these memorials!! And your NOT the only one related!!!

I get so tired of hearing people say they wont delete a duplicate memorial because.. {for whatever reason!!}.

Per F.A.G. rules.. You should never deliberately create a duplicate memorial. You should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. !! THIS MEANS YOU TOO!! Even if you do have more information! I find this as YOU being inconsiderate to those who created the original, for all you know they are related too.. ALSO do a search for the person your about to add by name and one of the known years, birth or death, not just search the cemetery your about to add them to. Some people create memorials for family members they don't know where they are buried. I am not impressed by numbers, more impressed by accuracy and willingness to be helpful!!

If the duplicates end up getting merged it sometimes creates 2 people listed with same name under parents, depending on how people are attached to each other.. Do you want that???

RE: Sally Glaister Major Nance
Hi that was so kind of you to actually write a response :) since you were a nance you are probably much closer related to her.

Irena Williamson Nance
I am doing some research for my son-in-law, Josh Nance. Irena Williamson Nance (memorial # 118465643) was his gg grandmother. The death certificate birth date and the date on the tombstone do not match. I have her husband as "Jim" James R. Nance born in 1847. I've also seen Richard James Nance. Just trying to be sure I have the right people. I realize mistakes can be made on death certificates and on tombstones since relatives are doing the reporting. Any records you have would be appreciated. My email is

RE: Georgia Bernice Barker
Thanks for the replies. Do you know how Georgia Beatrice Barker and Benjamin Jefferson Barker were related before their marriage? Have you seen a marriage certificate for them?
Joseph Coleman Barker has a Find A Grave memorial # 8332502 and buried in Pulaski Co., VA. The memorial indicates Joseph's wife's, Flora, parents were S.F. and L.E. Hawley. Steward F. and Leota E. Hawley. I'm trying to resolve the difference in Flora's parents between Samuel Rufus Holley and Luvenia A. Skeen OR Steward F. and Leota E. Hawley. Can you resolve my dilemma?

Benjamin Jefferson Barker
I found the death certificate for Benjamin J. Barker on his memorial and was wondering about his wife, Georgia Barker.. The dc has his wife's name as Georgia Barker Barker. Were they related before marriage? Do you know who Georgia's parents were?
I had a great aunt, Effie, who was married to a Joseph Barker. Effie was Joseph's second wife and Joseph had a daughter by his first wife whose name was Georgia Barker. Georgia had sisters, Elsie, Ruby and Flora.

RE: Charles F and Mary Elizabeth (Carle) Nantes
Thank you for your reply. I'm looking for information on Charles's wife Elizabeth Carle. Elizabeth was my Grandmother's sister. From your reply I don't believe you have much information on this family.
Thanks again for your reply

Charles F and Mary Elizabeth (Carle) Nantes
Thank you Sonia for posting the cemetery that Charles and Mary Nantes are buried in along with a photo of their headstone. I have been looking for years for any information about my G Aunt Mary Elizabeth Carle (daughter of Ezra and Rachel Carle) and Charles F Nantes her husband. If by chance you have additional information on this Nantes couple I would dearly love to fill in blanks in my family tree. Thanks for any help you can give me and again thanks for your Find A Grave posting.
Yours Truly, Linda Batchelor Frazer

RE: Dorcas Nance and Leander Nance
Who was Leander Nances father and mother. I have William Nance as his father and Sally Parker ? Sarah Parker. If you have any further info on Wm and Sally's parents? Does Leander Nance have a tombstone or unmarked grave in the Fishing Creek Arbor cemetery? On find a grave I noticed him listed in the cemetery but could not find his grave. I thank you so much for any info you can give me. I found an old cemetery off the Ball Rd in Wilkes co. And was told by an uncle that it was the old Anderson cemetery but unfortunately there are only rocks for headstones and no markings. Unsure who's graves they are. The graves are out beside a house which as since growed up. Back in the late 1990s I went with my uncle and someone in the house kept the grass cut around them. At that time my uncle probably told me some of the ones buried there but don't remember. Thanks for any info.
