NANCE, Dr. Zachariah
Can anyone tell me where I might find a copy of the medical license of Dr. Zachariah NANCE. Someone has told me they have a copy and that it was hard to come by but I have been unable to find where these records are kept. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Kimberly Nance,

Looking for the last name, parents, siblings etc of a Sarah, born about 1814 in Union County, who married a John Nance (one of many John Nances in this area) and had a son named Larkin Rosemond Nance in 1835. John and Sarah's other known sons were William and James. The family moved to Texas, but Larkin married Anne Palmer Cudd in Georgia, and all but one of Larkin and Anne's children were born in Texas. Given the naming pattern, this Sarah might be a Sarah Rosemond or a Sarah Larkin, or these names might be somewhere in her family tree.

Carol Miller,

President NORMAN was married to a Margart PALMER. I find them in Heard Co., GA living with the Joshua PALMER family. The NORMAN family was from Union Co., and I believe this PALMER family was, too. I beleve there were several NORMANS on the Union Co. census index in 1840. I see several NORMANS on the Probate list. Please, may I hear from anyone about ANY of the NORMAN family? Carol Miller
