GEn. FRANCIS NASH, fourth son of John and Ann Owen Nash, was born at Templeton Manor, the homestead of his father, in Prince Edward County, Virginia, about 1742. I have given some account of his ancestry in the sketch of his brother, Governor Abner Nash.

His father was a well-to-do planter, and gave his sons such an education as befitted their condition. Francis Nash certainly had a good English education and some acquaintance with the classics.
