I am just beginning to do a family tree for my children. This is all new for me. I don't have much information. Maybe you can help. My family lines are:

My grandfather was Gilbert Harold Nash b. 1915 D.1987 San Antonio Texas. He married Ruth Edge then Stella ?
His father was Gilbert Harold Nash b.1895 D. 1964. He married Gertrude Penrod.

Gilbert"s father was George Nash.

George Nash was born 1838 in England and immigrated to the US in 1839. He and his wife, Elizabeth (1842 England) ?? were married 1861 and settled in Edwards County, Illinois. To this union nine children were born:
Hannah Nash
Vincent Nash
George A Nash
Clara Nash
Eliza Nash
Frank Nash
Alfred Nash
Harriet Nash

George A Nash (1865 Albion Illinois) Married Mary Catherine Chism in 1883. Eight children to this union:
Harry Nash
Gilbert Nash
Charles A Nash
Mae Nash
Pearl Nash
Hattie Nash
Infant girl died at birth.

Gilbert Nash (1895) married Gertrude Penrod (b.1896)
I know one child was born Gilbert Nash (1915)

Gilbert Nash married Ruth Edge in. Four children from this union
Shirley Nash
Janette Nash
Wanda Nash
Larry Nash (my father)

This is all I know from this line of family. I am very interested in recieving any information on this Nash Line. No information to small.

Thank You
