I don't know if Mr. Nall and I were related, but I was doing some research into my ancestors during the War Between the States. I found I had relatives named Nall and that they resided in Kentucky. One Nall was in the Union cavalry. Nall is not a real common name, and don't know how many there are in Kentucky, but I suspect I'm a distant relative of this gentleman, who I never met. (With my relatives residing in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Missouri, I found relations on both sides. One relative rode with Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forest, while his brother joined the Union army, was captured, released, and prompty deserted. You never know what you will find. I recommend folks take the time to do the research. It is very rewarding.)
My condolences to the Nall family, as Mr Fred Nall, achieved much in his lifetime.
