NADING posted by Dan Stevenson on Tuesday, May 6, 1997

NADING: A NADING family from the Moravian Community at Salem, North Carolina came to Ray County, Missouri in about 1850. I know that some members were still living around Richmond as late as 1947[?]. Various family members seemed to drift in and out. Does anyone have any NADING family members in your Ray County line? Dan_Stevenson@sparta.com
