He was united in marriage in 1885 at Mount Ayr, with Miss Rozella Courtney, who with her infant son passed away in April 1887.  Mr. Nash will be remembered by the older residents of the community.  The following mention of his death is taken from the Poudre Valley:  The sudden death of Charles J. Nash at his farm home six miles north of Windsor Tuesday night, July 8, 1924, was a shock to the entire community.  Death resulted from heart trouble.  On Tuesday afternoon Mr. Nash complained of a slight pain in th region of his heart, but gave the matter but little thought.  However, whe he retired for the night he found that he could neither recline nor sit up with any degree of comfort owing to intense pain in the heart region. A physcian was summoned, but death ensued before the latter reached his bedside.  He passed away at 11 o’clock.  Mr. Nash was one of the best known and most highly repected farmers of Windsor territory.  He came to his home place many years ago, and by hard work gained a competence and improved his farm to its present high class among those of the neighborhood.  Charles J. Nash was born at Pontiac, MI., on January 17, 1863.  His father died while in th service of his country during the Civil War.  His mother, Mrs. Sarah J. Nash-Austin, died at his home just two months ago to the day.  On December 4, 1889, he married Miss Adella Kempton, who survives him.  To this union were born the following children, who also survive him: Mrs. Alice Davidson, of Denver; Mrs. R. E. Wailes of Serverance; Mrs. F. M. Gardner of Fort Collins; Lester Nash of Windsor; and Morton, Burnham, and Della Nash, all of whom are still at home.  Five grandchildren also survive him, as well as his half brother, Dennis B.
