in 1849 at Christiansburg. In the fall of 1850 he entered the medical
department of the Louisville University, graduated in 1853, and in the
same year began practice at Drennon Springs, Henry County, Ky., where he
remained ten years. He then located at Clay Village, where he has since
practiced. Dr. Nash married, in 1856, Miss Jennie Phillips, who died in
the spring of 1864. In 1866 he married Mrs. Emily (Guthrie) Shindler, a
