Thanks for your reply. I Can go back as far as my g-grand father James Monroe Nanney who died in 1952 in calloway co. KY. I am not sure when he was born but my father remembered him and his wife Willie Lee. I never got the chance to talk to my grandfather about any of this. He died in 1986 in Calloway co. My lieage is me Doyle Franklin Nanney b.1966 in Highland Park MI.. My father was Cleatus F. Nanney born in Calloway co.ky in 1927 to George Alfred Nanney d 1986 Calloway co. and Minnie Outland d 1989 Calloway co. Cleatus died on May 2 2010 in sterling hts. MI. And of course my g-grandfather James Monroe. I am afraid that is all I really know for sure at this time. They were all farmers in KY until my father Cleatus moved to MI in the early 50's. Thanks again for your time to reply.
