What I know about Nancy Markham Dimmitt

You know, the thing about Nancy Dimmitt that blows my mind is this: My Aunt Helen (age 95) can still remember seeing “Grandma Dimmitt” sitting in a rocker on the front porch. What’s nancy markham dimmitt genealogyamazing about this is that Nancy Dimmitt was a Civil War bride. It just amazes me that my aunt can remember someone who was born 20 years before the beginning of the Civil War.

I don’t know much about Grandma Dimmitt except, via photos, she was tiny, wore her hair pulled straight back, and married Calvin Dimmitt while his (Union) regiment was stationed in Tennessee.
