Re: Napier-Langston-Watkins-Nance Family of TN

Dear Regina,
Thanks for your email. It is wonderful to receive a response. The Nance - Napier and Watkins families have connections in Alabama as well as Louisiana (Ouachita Parrish, for starters and elsewhere). In Louisiana I've heard of a connection between the Nance' and Watkins'which "began someplace else" possibly TN?

The Nance' of Alabama came into my research by way of Courtland AL, (Lawrence County)where a John Nance is married to a Frances (maiden name: Napier-they had three children) according to the 1870 census and explains the presence of my GGGmother: Chaney (Channie) Napier (a widow) in the Nance household with her own two daughters (Sophia and Laura Napier). Having lost the Nance family for a couple of decades I found them in Limestone AL Census but have not gotten out of Colbert and Franklin County archives to spend some quality time down there.

Would be intersted to learn of the Nance' from TN as there could be a connection. Hope to hear from you soon. Best regards. Tom
