I am looking for Jesse Nation/Nations in Pickens Co., Al. and in Blount Co., Al. I found where a Jesse Nation died in Blount Co., Al. 9-18-1919. Does anyone have any info on this Jesse? There is a Jesse Nations listed with a Nancy Nations age 60 a widow, a Nancy Nations (sister?) and Jesse is listed as age 20 on the 1880 Census in Pickensville, Pickens Co., Ala. on www.familysearch.com
My Jesse married Nancy Ann Mahalia Sikes/Sykes in 5 June 1883 in Pickens Co., Al. He left his family and disappeared before 1900. Nancy went to Oklahoma to live. Their daughter, Ella Rebecca Nation/Nations married James Moses Farley in Pickens Co., Ala. 9 June 1901. James Farley is buried in Salem Primitive Baptist Ch. Cem. in Gordo, Tuscaloosa Co., Al. and Ella is buried in Tuscaloosa Memorial Gardens Cem. in Tuscaloosa, Al. I have a picture of Ella and hope to get a picture soon of James.
