Would like information to my gr grandfather and his first wife,Nancie Penelope Owens Battles, my gr grandmother. J.T. Was born in 1855 in AL. I would really like to know if there are any aunts,uncles,cousins anywhere that I don't know about. I never knew much about my dad's family and would love to meet someone related to me. Children born to them were William Frank, Ida E, and Iva A. Also, sons Jim, Ed, and Luther were born. Nancie died (?) leaving, as mentioned in later census records, her four sons. I don't know if the girls lived and were married or what. J.T. remarried a Martha (Mattie) Bush or Busch. I believe he moved his entire to Arkansas sometime in the early 1890's. He and Mattie had one son, John Burt. J.T's son, William Frank, or Frank as he was called, married Nettie Hopper Ross, a widow with three small children: Leona, Charles, and Ed. John Bert married Leona. Frank and Nettie had a large family including my Dad, James (Ellis). I have pictures of Frank and Nettie but nothing of J.T. I welcome any correspondence.
