.            1850 Floyd Co, Va census, p 340, #323/323, Jacob Nester,13 Va, living with Daniel Nester.
.            1855, 13 Feb to 22 Apr 1856: Jacob Nester became indebted to merchants Harvey Deskins and Thomas W. Williamson on four
.                      accounts.  Judgements for them on these accounts were obtained in the Floyd Count court on 21 May 1857.  When Jacob's
.                      father Daniel died on Oct 1866, these two merchants attempted to sue him for his share of Daniel's estate.  See Floyd Co
.                      Chancery Order Bk 2, p 15-16, 1866, which states that Jacob was living out of state.
.            1860 Carroll Co census, p 924, #983/989, Nancy,21 Va, Preston,5 Va, living with (?Ambrose) Phillips.
.            1870 Carroll Co census, Pine Creek, p 469, #252/259, Nancy Nester,31 Va, keeping house, Preston,14 Va, Sarah,11 Va, Jas,4 Va,
.                     (inf dau),5/12 Va.
.            1880 census, Nancy not located, but two of her children living with her parents:
.            1880 Carroll Co census, Pine Creek, p 77D, #393/400, Jane,9 Va (grandchild), William,8 Va (grandchild), living with A.C. and
.                     Lucy Phillips.

.            issue: (of Jacob and Nancy):

1.   Ballard Preston Nester (Preston), b 1858 Floyd Co, Va (b Mar 1857 acc to 1900 census), m(1) Liona Moore, m(2) Irena
.                  Reece (Irene).  Moved to Mercer Co, WVa.

.            issue (of Nancy, but not of Jacob):

2.   Sarah Victoria Nester (Victoria), b 1862 Carroll Co, m 10 Apr 1880 Floyd Co to her mother's 2nd cousin Wesley Quesen-
.                  berry, b Aug 1855 Floyd Co, s/o Lewis C. Quesenberry and Sarah Jane Cox (Sally) (d/o
William Braxton Cox (Brack) (#33)).
.                  Wesley was Largen Wesley Quesenberry, s/o Lewis C. H. Quesenberry and Sarah ("Sally") Jane Cox, by some accounts.
.                  1870 Floyd Co census, Indian Valley & Burks Fork Twp, p 24, #158/150, Braxton Cox,63 Va, farmer, Nancy,63 Va, Sally Que-
.                           senberry,35 Va, Wesley,15 Va, Emaline,13 Va, Lucy Jane,11 Va, Nancy Phillips,25 Va, Tazewell,9 Va, Jackson,7 Va.
.                  1880 Floyd Co census, Indian Valley, p 297B, #81/82, Sarah Nester,18 Va, servant, Wesly Quesenberry,24 Va, laborer, living
.                           with Preston and Permelia Phillips.  (this was
Preston K. Phillips (#421215))
.                  1900 census, family not located.

3.   James G. Phillips, b ca 1866-68 Va.  This is apparently James Garland Phillips (Garland), and the source of the listing of
.                  Garland Nester as a s/o Nancy Phillips Nester, by the author in Ref's 1 and 2 below.  The author in his 2nd book, below, listed
.                  James Garland Phillips as a s/o
James Phillips (#421412) and Nancy Cox (Nannie), confusing this Nancy with the one who m
.                  Jacob Nester.  The only James in the area in 1870 and 1880 was the s/o Nancy Phillips Nester:
.                  1880 Floyd Co census, Indian Valley, p 300A, #127/129, James G. Phillips,12 (nepew), farmer, living with Owen and Luvena
.                           Quesenberry.  (Luvena was James' aunt Louvena Phillips Quesenberry (Vena))
.                  Therefore the following is apparently the s/o Nancy Phillips Nester (Nannie) and not Nancy Cox Phillips (Nannie):
James Garland Phillips (Garland), b ca 1865-68 Floyd Co, d prior 1900, m 26 Nov 1886 Surry Co, NC to Pensanner Lay-
