Re: NANNEY 's Coat Of Arms
I didn't go to that website but I'm sure those are "junk" books. By junk I mean they don't really help you and all Nanney contacts are just extracted from phone number/address taken from online websites [which you can get for free - I know because I posted them here years ago]. We have one of those books from 15-20 years ago. If that's not the type of book it is, my bad. If it helps you great. If not, it's a waste of money. If it's someone in the family selling it, that's one thing but a website selling every surname out there? They don't know our family. 90% of all our genealogy is out there, FOR FREE so use your money wisely. Subscribe to ancestry.com and search to your hearts content. And don't just search Nanney but Nanny and Naney and Nannie and .... You never know how somehow transcribed the written surname.
If I recall correctly Martin was an indentured servant. From Robert down to me [on my website] is 100% verifiable. However as I've explained before I think I know about where your Douglas D. of NC/VA fits in with all the other Nanney's from there but I can't just throw him in there without proving it. I sure would like to find something that shows his father. That would cement your family tree into Roberts. You are just one generation from linking it. Keep searching his military records, even the unindexed unalphabetical unorganized microfilms. You find one that mentions his parents, you're done. The same goes for John Howard. His name is extremely similar to other Nanneys of that time period. One more generation on either of them and I'm 99% sure their parents are documented in Lynn Fussell's Descendency Chart.
