The 53rd wedding anniverary of Mr. and Mrs. Nathan A. Welch of Chattanooga, Tenn., was held in the Tilden Community last Wednesday, January 20, in the home of his brother, J.E. Welch and Mrs. Welch. Mr. Nathan Welch made his home in Itawamba County for a number of years and Mrs. Welch will be remembered as the former Miss Nancy Clayton, a native Itawambian.

Nathan Asa Welch and Nancy L. Clayton were married about 1907 in probably Itawamba County. Initially, Nathan and Nancy made their home in the New Salem community south of Fulton where both of their families lived, but sometime before 1920 the couple moved to Fayette County, Alabama and then to Birmingham where they are found in the 1920 and 1930 censuses. Sometime after 1930, Nathan and Nancy moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee where they lived until their deaths.

Nancy was a sister to my great-grandmother, Queenie Victoria Clayton Davis. The above photo was among Queenie's possessions.
