I just emailed Lisa in regards to the same message that you answered her on.
My name is Joyce NASH - Wafford. I am also researching the MASH / NASH families in Shannon County and Carter County areas. I am wondering if you could ask your step-father if he recalls either of those surnames.
I was raised with the NASH surname, but have found out through my research that our family surname was actually MASH and then changed to NASH during the late 1860s.
I am related to JOHN W. "JACK or JACKSON" MASH who lived in Jasper Township, Shannon County, along with eight other MASH Families on August 18, 1860. I also have a WILLIAM MASH / NASH who lived in Kelly Township, Carter County, on July 31, 1860.
I have been trying to find out the exact location of JASPER TWP., in Shannon Co., and KELLY TWP., in Carter Co., and the distance from one to the other. Was Carter once part of Shannon County?
We are positive that WILLIAM moved from Montgomery County, Illinois, to be closer to family members, but cannot locate anyone else in Carter County, other than him and his immediate family. He is living next door to a Jasper Pennington and family, whose mother in law is also listed as Margaret NASH. We are unsure if this is possibly a sister to WILLIAM or a sister in law. I have been unable to trace either WILLIAM MASH / NASH or JASPER PENNINGTON after the 1860 Census were taken. So have no idea as to what may have happened to these families.
You may email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Any help that you may be able to give me will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
