The following obituary notice of my second great grandfather Edmond Nash (Civil War veteran) was kindly sent to me by T. Kirby of Tennessee. Curiously, it doesn’t mention he was a Civil War veteran! Also, it had Edmond’s name spelled as “Edmund.”  It read exactly as follows:

          EDMUND NASH


    Edmund Nash, one of the county’s

oldest citizens, died at noon Saturday

at the home of his son Asa Nash

at Frog Pond.  Death was due to

cancer, although he had suffered

from a heart ailment.  He was in his

96th year and twice married, his first

wife having been Miss Susannah

Hitchcock, who died about 50 years

ago.  Later he married Mrs. Elizabeth

Jackson.  He is survived by eight

sons, Ammon and Almon Nash,

both of Springtown, Texas;  Albert

Nash of Edmonton, KY;  Alvin

Nash of Monterey; Alfred Nash

of Baxter; Add Nash of Cedar Hill,

Texas;  and Asa and Alphus Nash

of Frog Pond;  and one daughter,

Mrs. Ada Gallenger of Dallas,

Texas.  Arthur, Alice and Altie

Nash preceded their father in death.

All of his twelve children had

names beginning with the letter A.

    Burial was Sunday after noon in

the Hitchcock Cemetery in White

County, following funeral services

conducted by Elders G.C. West

and W.H. York.  The deceased was

a member of Cane Creek Baptist

Church in White County, of which

county he was a native.  He came

to Macon County 34 years ago.


Edmond Nash died June 8, 1940.
