     GEORGE W. NASH resides about eight miles north from Govan, where he owns one section of fine wheat land.  He has a valuable residence, plenty of buildings, large estate and full equipments for the operation of the same.  The farm is all under cultivation and is one of the excellent places in Lincoln county.
     George W. Nash was born in Indiana, on November 13, 1866.  His father, Thomas H. Nash, was born near Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, and served all through the Civil War, being under Logan and Grant.  He came from Pennsylvania to Indiana in early days and did good work in the settlement of that section.  The mother of our subject, Martha (Dolans) Nash, was born in Indiana.  She had three brothers in the Civil War.  Our subject was educated in the common schools of Missouri whither he went with his parents when quite young.  Later he worked in sawmilling for a number of years, then came west, settling on his present location in 1889.  He increased his holdings by purchase until he owns a section of land, as stated above.  Mr. Nash remarks that when he came to his homestead and invoiced his property, he found that he possessed just nine dollars in cash which was the larger portion of his entire holding.  He has been prospered exceedingly in his labors on account of his wisdom and assiduity.
     In 1893, Mr. Nash married Miss Clara LaFollette, whose parents, Harvey and Susan (Fullerwider) LaFollette, were natives of Indiana.  Mrs. Nash was born in Wisconsin, reared in Indiana and came to the Big Bend country where she took a pre-emption in 1889.  She had two brothers, pioneers of Lincoln county, W. J., deceased, who had a pre-emption and homestead here; Grant A., who took government land which he has increased by purchase to an estate of eight hundred acres; and one, Hon. William L., the fruit king of the northwest, who now resides at Wawawai, Washington.  She is a cousin of Governor LaFollette of Wisconsin.  Various other members of the family have held prominent positions.  Mr. Nash has two brothers, John D. and H.
