My Nave ancestors hailed from East Tennessee (and, as we know, farther back all the way to Switzerland). But Tennessee became their stomping grounds, and for my line, also Indiana.

John T. B. Nave was my great-great grandfather, and his son Teter "Tete" Nave was my great-grandfather. Teter Nave was born in Tennessee and died in Logansport, Cass County, Indiana, in 1909. From all I have been able to gather so far, Teter Nave and his wife Elizabeth "Lizzie" Taylor had only one child, a daughter named Ruth, who was my grandmother.

Elizabeth Taylor Nave was born in Tennessee also. She married Teter Nave in Carter County, Tennessee, in 1879. (I'm posting this away from home today, so I don't have all my information handy). She died sometime after 1930.

Ruth Nave was born in 1892 (exact date unknown so far) in South Bend, St. Joseph, Indiana. She was a telephone operator, going to work to support her widowed mother. On 25 November 1913, she married my grandfather Benjamin Frankllin "Frank" Reed in South Bend.

I have copies of their marriage license applications, license, and the marriage certificate. God Bless Indiana -- they collected a LOT of information in those days, including parents' names (with mother's maiden name), parents' occupations, and a whole lot more.
