John Stanley Nolan and Nancy (Vertz) Marchant Nolan were married in 1994 after a blind date and a whirlwind courtship. John is a 1954 graduate from St. Martin's College in WA. He served in the US Army in Germany following WW2 for two and 1/2 years. He lost his wife of 29 years to cancer in 1986 and never had children. He completed 33 years with the WA State Dept. of Transportation in 1993. Nancy lost her husband in 1988 in a plane crash. She continued the family retail furniture business until marrying John. She still owns the business with Daughter Mandy and husband, Ty. She had five children, losing one at the age of 9 1/2 years. She has three daughters married with a total of 18 (Yes, We said EIGHTEEN) grandchildren. She also has a son, not married. John is making up for lost time enjoying being a grandfather to our little ones!Nancy worked on her families genealogy for many years and John got involved when they married. They LOVE family research and would like to get your Hollingsworth ancestors and you and your relatives in our Big Hollingsworth Clan. Nancy descends from Valentine, Thomas, Abraham, George, Abraham, Richard, Isaiah, Henry, Alta (m Simpson Dosser), and Lura Dosser (m Marvin Vertz). Sadly, Nancy passed away 23 Jul 2007, and John agreed to remain as the genealogist, serving in that capacity until early 2013. John now serves as our Genealogist Emeritus.
