Two NANSEL descendants connect to my GALUS family by marriage. Lucille Mildred NANSEL and Floyd Max NANSEL were first cousins. They married Ted GALUS and Bess GALUS, who were brother and sister.
My Dad's oldest brother Thaddeus (Ted) GALUS married Lucille/Lucile Mildred NANSEL 11 July 1934, in Monroe, Platte County, Nebraska. Ted and Lucille farmed near Monroe for several years. They later moved to Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska, where they both worked in the packing houses in South Omaha. They had two sons both of whom are still living.

Through my webpage I have connected with a group of NANSEL researchers. While the NANSEL line is not my primary research focus, I am always interested in sharing family history. We've collected a number of NANSEL photographs that I am displaying here.
