About us

This Nash DNA project is open to all Nash families who would like to participate. I will gladly add member family information or requests to this page.

The project was initiated to compare the DNA of descendants of two different Nash's, Andrew J. and William who lived in Montgomery/Macoupin Co. IL in 1850. Meeting roadblocks at every turn, and unable to find previous generations, we turned to DNA to hopefully determine if these two men were related. We did not get a match, but that hasn't discouraged us from trying to find others.

I have researched Nash's in Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia. I spent many hours at the Virginia State Library, going through manuscript papers of Francis Nash, and have wonderful documentation on many lines that left Virginia and moved westward. Unfortunately, none of them connect to mine yet. My hope is that descendants of some of these lines will join our project, and we will be able to join families together and fill in gaps left by unavailable records!
