TENNESSEE

Tennessee The Volunteer State Vol 3 At Alamo, on the 4th of January, 1904, occurred the marriage of Mr. NANCE to Miss Katherine Alsobrook, a daughter of James and Eugenia (Buford) Alsobrook. They were for many years prominent residents of Shelby county, in which county the father's demise occurred in 1900. To the union of Mr. and Mrs. NANCE three children have been born: James B., whose birth occurred in 1905; Mary Elizabeth, born in 1907; and a baby daughter, whose demise occurred in infancy. Mrs. NANCE is a woman of much culture and refinement and she is socially prominent.


Tennessee The Volunteer State Vol 3 Henry Booker NANCE was educated in the public schools of his native county and in due time enrolled in the Georgia Robison Christian College at Henderson. He was graduated from that institution in 1900, with the A. B. degree and returned to Alamo, where he has since resided. In 1901 he entered the general mercantile business and was active in the conduct of that enterprise until 1904, when he was elected assistant cashier of the Bank of Alamo. He discharged the duties of that office in such a capable manner that four years later he became cashier of the institution, in which official capacity he is now active. Mr. NANCE is likewise a director of the bank. He is a man of proven ability and well merits the success he has achieved. Prominent in the financial circles of Alamo is Henry Booker NANCE, cashier and director of the Bank of Alamo. He was born in Crockett county on the 13th of October, 1880, a son of Parham Booker and Molly (Robertson) NANCE, extended mention of whom is made on another page of this work.


From "Tennessee The Volunteer State Vol 3" A veteran of the Civil war and president of the Bank of Alamo is Parham Booker NANCE, one of the highly respected and beloved citizens of this community. A native of Tennessee, he was born in Rutherford county on the 7th of March, 1845, a son of William W. and Theodosia (Goodloe) NANCE. The maternal great-grandfather was Caswell Goodloe and he had a son, Henry, who became the father of Mrs. NANCE. William W. NANCE was born in 1812 and died in 1882. He was one of the prominent planters of his day and wasactive in the affairs of the Christian church, which church he served as elder for many years. Mrs. NANCE was born in 1820 and died in 1905.


Tennessee The Volunteer State Vol 4 France under Napoleon Bonaparte. He died without issue, so that his title descended at his death to his brother, who in the meantime had come to America, settling in Loudoun county, near Alexandria, Virginia, thus becoming the progenitor of the family i n the new world. Representatives of the name have since been prominently identified with the development of the south. The grandfather, Dr. John Fouch‚, married Miss Mary NANCE and resided at Richmond, Virginia, and later at Knoxville, Tennessee. Mary Na nce was a representative of the distinguished NANCE and Pryor families of Kentucky and all of the ladies of Fouch‚ blood are entitled to or hold membership with the Colonial Dames, the Daughters of the American Revolution and other patriotic societies of similar nature. The eldest daughter of Dr. John and Mary NANCE Fouch‚ was Fannie Fouch‚, who became the wife of Colonel John Bell Brownlow, the eldest son of William Ganaway Brownlow, ex-governor and ex-United States senator and frequently referred to a s "Parson" Brownlow. The second daughter of the family was Jennie Fouch‚, who married George P. McTeer of Knoxville.

When the inventory of Hugh Weir's estate was made in 1835, a list of customers with outstanding balances on their accounts was prepared to represent part of the value of his estate. This list of customers is found in Book 11 of the Mixed Probate Records of Pittsylvania County, VA. There is also a record of payments received on these accounts in the same Book. Hugh Weir had one store at Chatham, which was referred to as his store at Pittsylvania Court House, or at Competition as it was called at the time, and he was a partner in Smith and Weir's store at Mt. Airy. Inventories of the items in both stores are also in Book 11. James NANCE
