TAYLOR, SELLARS, BEARD/BAIRD, GOODWIN Richard W. Taylor was married to Lydia Beard/Baird c.1827 in Wilson Co., TN. His father may have been William. Richard and his family moved to Cole/Moniteau County, MO c. 1835 where he died in 1885. Lydia Beard/Baird was the daughter of David and Lavina Beard/Baird. She was born c. 1807 in Wilson Co. Laird/Lod/Lard Sellars was born in NC in 1771 (where? - maybe Chatham Co., NC?), and moved to Wilson Co., TN, c. 1810. He was married to Elizabeth Goodwin in 1830 in Wilson Co., and the family moved to Cole/Moniteau Co., MO c. 1845. Is any of this familiar to anyone?

NASH, MISENHEIMER, FOGLEMAN, POTTS, TAYLOR, OWEN, MANN, HILL, OUTLAW, LOCKERMAN All I know about my Tennessee connection for Andrew J. Nash was that he was suppose to have been born there in 1809 according to the census. Can someone help me place him in the correct Tennessee county? My maternal 3rd. great grandfather is Andrew Jackson NASH b. 1809 TN, d. 23 Jun 1854 Carlinville, Macoupin Co., IL, married first Mary Polly MISENHEIMER (daughter of John MISENHEIMER & Mary FOGLEMAN). He married second Mrs. Pacify Tinsey MANN and had son Francis (Frank) Marion Nash). Andrew and Mary had the following children: 1. John M. b. 1832 IL 2. Robert Franklin b. 1835 IL, d. ca. 1901 Terrell, TX, married 29 Sept 1859 in Montgomery Co., IL to Sarah POTTS 3. Andrew J. b. 23 Feb 1840 Macoupin Co., IL, d. 4 Feb 1923 in Cumberland Co., IL, married 14 March 1878 to Sarah TAYLOR 4. William J. b. 24 Sept 1842 Macoupin Co., IL, d. 30 Jul 1884 Mattoon, Coles Co., IL, married 10 Jan 1867 Litchfield, Montgomery Co., IL to Frances Jane OWEN (these are my 2nd. great grandparents). Andrew Jackson NASH might have been married before he married Mary MISENHEIMER as there was a Sarah NASH who married 10 Mar 1849 in Montgomery Co., IL to Robert HILL. There was also a Martha NASH who married 11 Feb 1850 in Montgomery Co., IL to James A. OUTLAW. On the 1830 census of Montgomery Co., IL, was listed Andrew NASH as male 20/30 yrs, 1 female under 5, one female 5/10 and one female 20/30. In 1853, Andrew was indicted for the murder of Alexander LOCKERMAN. Andrew and LOCKERMAN were drunk at a fourth of July picnic and there was a fight. Andrew stabbed LOCKERMAN and left for two years. He was found in Arkansas and brought back to Illinois for the trial. He was found guilty and was suppose to hang. His sentences was commuted to life in prison but there was a riot and he was killed.
