NOTE: Troy Wade Nanney is a neighbor who traces his lineage back to a manor house in Wales. He has shown me charts and graphs from ancient societies that placed great emphasis on faithfulness to blood relations. His stories that go back to the 1400’s are fascinating . The following chapters of the Nanney Saga include relatives in Montford Cove and Union Mills. (Thanks to Ian King, there is more information available directly from the Nannau neighborhood in Wales: http://nannau.com)

    I just found nannau.com online and the connection to your website. My mother Dorothy Dalton Nanney Bradshaw was daughter of Harrison Reid Nanney, originally from Union Mills and son of Asbury Nanney. Harrison married Clara Belle Dalton from Gilkey and they moved to Erwin, TN in 1917 where he took a job as Locomotive Engineer with the Clinchfield RR, retiring with 42 years service. My uncle Grover Nanney, born in Rutherfordton, also worked as a Locomotive Engineer and retired from the Clinchfield RR with 40 years service….he made runs to Bostic occasionally and would borrow an automobile, driving to Rutherfordton to visit his first cousin Woodrow Jones. I didn’t realize until reading your research that Col. Amos Nanney was first cousin to my great-great grandfather William Nanney…..they served together in Co G, 50th NC Regt.

      Welcome Howard, so glad you found the website. Keep reading! All the Nanney related posts are under “Nanney Saga.” I will soon start a new research into the Dysart family in nearby Dysartsville where Ruby Nanney Anglin lives. There will be another Nanney family reunion in August at the former Round Hill Academy. I hope to get the dates up when I hear them. If you hear first, please let me know! And thank you for your rundown of your family tree. You never know what relatives you might come across. Best wishes!
