John Adam Nash was born May 18, 1834 as the 7th child of Edward Nash (b. 1-15-1790, probably SC; d. 3-8-1862, Clayton Co., GA; md. 1824) and Margaret McVicker (b. 11-18-1804; d. 4-1-1886). Edward Nash had moved his family including 11 children to the Panhandle Road area of what is now Clayton County--just across the Flint River from the Inman community. John A. Nash married three times, having children with only the first wife. His wives were Nancy Slaughter Harp (daughter of Mozee Harp and Sarah Hill); Ora Annie Welden (daughter of William Welden and Rebecca Gill); and Ida Dobbins. His wives and children are listed in the Bible records below. John A. Nash was prominent in Liberty Chapel history, and will be found in the official church records. He died 4-6-1915, and is buried in Inman Cemetery.
