  4. Lille Leoto Nash
  5. Olah May Nash
  6. Willie D Nash

William might have been a migrant farmer because it appears he was a frequent mover. That would be common for farmers who would go where the crops were currently in their growing season. In 1880 William & Fannie were living in Sugar Valley, Gordon, Georgia with their children. William was a farmer.[5] By 1900 he and the family were 92 miles away in Stone Mountain.[6] 1910 saw them closer in Lithonia which is in Dekalb county, about 10 miles south.[7] All of these areas are heavily farmed.[8] His wife died sometime around 1925 and in 1930 William was living in the home of his daughter Willie Nash Dunaway. They lived in Dade county, Florida.[9]
