I am researching my ancestors beginning with my maternal grandparents: Joseph E. Nash born in Dannemora, Clinton County, NY, about October 1858 and Anna Frances Collins (nickname: Fanny) born in NY, possibly the same County as her husband, about March 6, 1875 -possibly 1874. He died in Sparks or Reno NV about December 23, 1928. She died June 16, 1961 in San Leandro, CA.Also I'm researching my paternal side beginning with my grandparents: Jesse Ulysses Merritt born in Snowhill, VA about 1869 or 1870 and Emily Ann Curles born in Nagshead, NC about 1882 or possibly before. Both died in Bridgeton, NJ (I've been told), he about 1951, she about1949.They had 15 children who lived to adulthood - all born between 1898 & 1926. Their children were: George, Jesse Jr, Edward Tyndle(my father), Laurene, Thomas, John, Frank, Emily, Walter,"Colonel",Russell Bernard,Eva,Victor, Herbert & Leonard. Any help? I will share.
