|4 iii. Millard Fillmore Nash reference LR 295 (#4093) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 3 JAN 1879. Individual flags: Photograph. Millard died ABT 1960 at age unknown. There is a picture of Millard Nash in Grandma Miller's book. He owned the house my grandmother Miller lived in with Theron Hulslander just below the Elk Run School. Millard had lived in it at the time Joan Nash was in school in Elk Run. He was apparently an "odd ball" of sorts and Joan was teased for being related to him although she is not. He is mentioned frequently in parts of the Emerson Smith diaries since they lived next door to each other and Millard was Emerson's nephew. (Photo at right taken 1941 in front of the house just below the Elk Run School.)|
5 iv. Everett Rexford Nash
reference LR 296 (#4094) was born in Rutland Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania
15 AUG 1881. Individual flags: Soc.Sec.. Everett died 13 APR
1978 in Wellsboro, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, at age 96. His body
was interred APR 1978 in Prospect Cemetery, Mansfield, Tioga County, Pennsylvania.
He married Anna E. Mason 14 MAR 1905. (Anna E. Mason reference SSI)
(Anna E. Mason is #8338.) Anna was born 11 MAR 1887 in Gillett, South
Creek Township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania. Anna was the daughter
of James Will Mason* and Delphine Wood. Anna died 04 JUL 1983 in

Her body was interred JUL 1983 in Prospect Cemetery, Mansfield, Tioga County,

Township overlooking the village of Roseville, known as Valley View Farm.
6 v. Harriet Nash reference LR 297 (#7008) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 13 MAR 1884. Hattie died 1952 at age 68. She married William Narsh before 1907. (William Narsh is #11414.) William was born 20 DEC 1875. William was the son of Samuel Narsh and Harriet Kent*. William died 31 JUL 1962 in Horseheads, Chemung County, New York, at age 86. His body was interred Aug 1962 in Maple Grove Cemetery, Horseheads, Chemung County, New York. Narsh is the correct name. It is not a typo. Harriett NASH married William NARSH. William was a storekeeper at Tompkins Corners, Horseheads. He died in Tompkins Corners at age 87. Narsh is a very rare name with few instances in the Social Security Death Index. I believe it is a corruption of Nash, and we have the store records of Elisha Nash who occasionaly signed his name as Narsh. All the people in the SSDI with this name are either from Horseheads, NY or Missouri. Joan found records, I believe in Town of Catlin office, that Harriet died 28 Dec. 1940.Daughters, Bessie, Mabel, Sons, Clare, Elisha, grandchildren John and Janette P???ow, and Geraldine & Jeanette Narsh. For some reason, I have that Clare is William's son from an earlier marriage and therefore a step son, not a son. A note at the side of the paper indicates Maple Grove Cemetery in Horseheads but there is no indication if it is Harriet or one of her brothers there. Ask Joan for clarification.
7 vi. Dean Nash reference LR 298 (#4096) was born in Sullivan Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania 1 NOV 1886. Dean died in of Bethlehem, Northampton County, Pennsylvania, at age unknown.
