Descendants of George and Lucinda “Lucy” Woodward Nance

“Branches and Twigs” are the descendants of our parents, grandparents, great grandparents and great, great grandparents. At this time, I have not thoroughly researched most of these aunts, uncles and cousins. Some are deceased and others are living and our inherited family photo albums held only a smattering of photos. We wish there were more to share, so if you have any pictures you would like to share, please send them to me and I’ll add them to this section of the blog.
