Elizabeth Frances Nettles Chisholm

By Virginia Porter


Virginia Louise McManus was born June 19, 1956 at Barberton Citizens Hospital in Barberton, Summit County, Ohio. Her father, Richard Lydell McManus, was 30 years old and worked as a foreman for Poston Construction Company. Her mother, Joyce Nettles McGee, was 26 years old at the time. Virginia was the only child born to Richard and Joyce that was born in a hospital. All the other children had been born in the local Doctor's office in Wilcox County, Alabama.

She married STEPHEN DOUGLAS PORTER, SR., 28 Jun 1975. in Pinellas Park, Florida. He was born 17 Jul 1949 in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio. They separated in 2005. To this union were born 5 children:
Brandon, Crystal, Lewis, Stephen Jr., and Joyclyn.
Brandon is a disc jockey in Mobile, Alabama.
Crystal is a special child that has cerebral palsy but always has a smile.
Lewis just graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a BA in Animation and a BA in Illustration.
Stephen Jr. was stillborn and is buried in Sylacauga, Alabama.
Joyclyn is another special needs child that has Asperger’s Syndrome. She is very creative and does lots of art drawings.
I am a pianist for First Christian Church, Perry, GA. I also teach piano and have several students. I have played piano since I was 12 years old.
From 1994 to 1996, I studied piano and pipe organ with Ms. Sarah Scott in Alexander City, Alabama
From 1996 to 1997, I studied performance  under world renown pianist  Charles Edward Eikner at Wesleyan College for women in Macon, Georgia.

Inherited talent from both my mom and dad I think. Mom played piano and Dad played anything that had strings. His first love was steel guitar. I can remember mom playing for every church we attended.

In 1997, we got our first computer. By this time my parents and grandparents had passed on and I felt that my children were not connected to any of their relatives. Researching became my new love other than music. I started meeting cousins online and my kids now warn others not to get me talking about genealogy. Ha! Ha! My mother use to say that we had gypsy blood in our veins as we always moved so much. I have not proved this to be true. (I think this was just her love for traveling.) If you do not write down the stories of your childhood how will your grandchildren and grandchildren know of all the wonderful and not so wonderful experiences you had growing up. That is what I would like to do for my family. That is why I do what I do today.
I hope you enjoy the research that I and others have done. If we are not kin, somewhere our kin were neighbors for sure…

God Bless,
Virginia McManus Porter

Nettles History

According to one source, the Nettles family was of
Welsh origin. The name originally had many spellings,
such as Nettle, Nettl, and Nettels. Information compiled
and arranged by Laura Powers Marbat and Sarah
Powers Thielbar states that the Nettles family was
English and settled in Ireland about 1620. As recorded
in Burke's General Amory, John Nettles was granted
land. One record stated that sometimes before the late
war it was found that a large sum of money was in the
Bank of England for those of the Nettles name in
America. Feverish efforts were made to find those
descendants and genealogical lines were searched.
About 70 families were found in Alabama and
Mississippi, but the number in the Carolinas, Florida
and Tennessee is not known. So far as in known, the
money is still there.
There is a recent claim of Italian descendancy, stating
that the name was at first Nocadello, then Nadales. In
the quest for accuracy, this information will be updated
accordingly if records can be provided.

Notes for CAPT. JOHN NETTLES:
Is this referring to our Captain James Nettles maybe??
http://www.theshipslist.com/ships/descriptions/gggsketch2.html
JAMES CAMPBELL
The crew of this ship must have been very brave men, indeed, to have laid hands on their Captain and confined
him in the manner described. The Captain's behaviour must have been intolerable, even for those days, to have
been driven to such lengths. Who was the owner? The ship's name is Scottish, there are some Scots surnames
amongst the crew and money was raised for their defence in Glasgow. From GGGPa's scrapbook.
JAMES CAMPBELL
Owner unknown, barquentine, 300 tons, Captain William Graham. Crew members George Rose, John Harult,
Richard Thomas Lacy, John McPhee, Robert Craig, Robert Wright, Daniel McLean, Charles Moffatt, Thomas
Stratton and James Nettles were tried before Mr Justice Williams, at Exeter Assizes, “on Monday”, charged with
piracy. They pleaded ‘Not Guilty’. The statute under which they were charged enacted that “if any seaman shall
confine his captain, or shall make or endeavour to make a revolt ,he shall be deemed a pirate and a robber.” If
found guilty, the sentence would have been transportation or imprisonment. Two of the men were Mates and
others, seamen.
The vessel sailed on March 5th, 1847, for Batavia and Singapore. On March 29th, when off Cape Finisterre,
Stratton was at the wheel and did, or said, something which displeased the Captain. The Captain told Stratton to
leave the wheel and go and grease the masts. Stratton refused. The Captain then ordered all hands on deck and
told the Mates to order the men to do it. The men still refused, saying it was the job of the deckboys to do it. The
Captain then told the crew he would put them on short rations. There was some beef cooking and he ordered it to
be taken aft, to his cabin. The men, though, refused to give up their meat. The Captain found that the Mates were
inclined to encourage the crew in their misconduct so he armed himself with a cutlass and again ordered the men
to take the beef aft. He said, “The first man who dares to interfere, I will cut him down.” The crew saw that the
Captain was not to be trifled with and they allowed the steward to take the meat to the Captain’s cabin. The
Captain then went to his cabin and ate his dinner.
Afterward, thinking he had done enough to assert his authority, he returned the meat to the men. He then received
a message saying the men were on deck and wanted to speak to him. When he got there, the sailors surrounded
him, one of them pinioned him and others put handcuffs on him, lashed his legs together and ordered him below.
He asked the Mates, Rose and Harult, if they were going to stand by and see him treated in that manner. They
replied that they had no choice, for the crew had taken over the ship.
The Captain was then carried bodily to his cabin which the Mates and steward had previously cleared out by
removing the fire-arms, chronometers and nautical instruments. The vessel’s course was then altered towards
Plymouth and the ship was put under the command of Rose. They removed the Captain’s irons only once, to
enable him to change his clothes, and the whole time he was incarcerated a man was stationed outside his cabin
door with a drawn cutlass.

Upon arriving at Plymouth, the crew made a complaint against the Captain but they, themselves, were arraigned
for piracy.At the trial, Stratton’s solicitor argued that, under the circumstances, the prisoners had a fair and
reasonable ground for the apprehension that their lives might ultimately be in danger and they had therefore acted
in the manner they did. The defence said it reflected the highest credit upon them.The Judge then asked the jury if
they thought that this was true, to which the jury answered “Yes” and a verdict of “not guilty” was returned. The
prisoners were discharged, to cheers. £150 had been subscribed in Glasgow for the purpose of the prisoners’
defence and a similar amount in Exeter.

Nettles Family
18
The Nettles family was of Welch decent. Two brothers came by way of New York and arrived in Virginia in the
1660's.
Land grants from different kings of England was given to the Nettles in Virginia. Records in Gloucester County,
Virginia and 1728. They moved with these families to other states. Robert was a Surveyor and Road
Commissioner.
Notes for MARY VICARIS:
After Robert died, his wife, Mary of Petsworth Parish, Glouchester County, Virginia bound out her children 14
and under to other families in compliance with an order from Glouchester County Court, dated August 22, 1728.
Four children were indentured -- Records in Vestry Book of Petwswoth Parish 1677-1793.
Information compiled and arranged by Laura Powers Marbat and Sarah Powers Thiedlbar states that the Nettles
family was English and settled in Ireland about 1620. As recorded in Burke's General Armory John Nettles was
granted land. It has been found in the Vestry Book of Petsworth Parish, Glouster County, Virginia., that one John
Nettles died in Virginia. This source of information provides the basis for what is generally accepted as the
beginning of the Nettles family in South Carolina and other Southern states. Though the Register Book has been
lost, the Church Minutes in the Vestry Book show the following information: Thomas Vicaris was rector of the
Parish as early as 1677, dying before 1696. On Oct. 13, 1697 the vestry paid Mrs. Vicaris, widow of the
Reverand Thomas Vicaris, 3,000 pounds in back pay. Among their children, all minors, was a daughter named
Mary, who married a Robert Nettles, who is shown in the Gloucester County records as a surveyor and County
Commissioner. He died before 1795. According to the church records the widow was Mary Nettles (ne'e Mary
Vicaris), daughter of minister Thomas Vicaris. At Robert's death Mary was left with seven children, four of whom
were minors, who in 1728 were "bound out" as follows: Mary was bound to Conquest Watt and remained in
Virginia. William, age 10, was bound to Edward Wyatt. He later moved to Fairfax County, Virginia., and later
still to Fairfield County, South Carolina He was the father of Zachariah and William, Junior. of Fairfield, and
possibly others. George bound to Samuel Coleman came with him to the Pee Dee area, and Darlington County,
South Carolina There were many descendants in that area, who later moved to Charleston County. Solomon was
bound to Reverand John Reade, Minister of Stratton Major Parish, Virginia. 1734-1744. He is supposed to have
come to Edgecombe County, N. C. in 1754. By this time he had reached maturity and, of course, was no longer
bound; but he could have accompanied his benefactor to lend aid to the aged minister. It is Solomon's line that
will now be traced. 98 When it became necessary to turn the children over to the church following Roberts death,
Rev. John Reade on 11 Nov 1734 (page 392 of Petsworth Parish Virginia 1677-1793) offered to officiate.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Jacob Humble's wife was named Mary. Mary's maiden name was probably Nettles. There was a several
generation geographical closeness and some intermarriage between the Humbles and the Nettles. I have been
unable to connect any Nettles to Anson or Montgomery County, NC, but they were in Feliciana Parish, LA and
Amite County, MS with the Humbles.
Mary's and Jacob's son Henry named one of his daughters Mary Nettles Humble. One of Henry's sons, James,
married a Mary Nettles.
A Mary Nettles, a widow, in 1728 in Glouchester County, VA bound out here four children.
One of the children was Solomon Nettles, married Elizabeth, and lived in Edgecomb County, NC and Sumter
County, SC. One of their children was Mary Nettles, born in 1747. She had a twin brother, John, about whom
there is some information. Nothing more "official" about Mary. Based on date of birth and proximity I think this
is probably Jacob's wife Mary.
Jacob died in 1797. A widow Mary Humble is shown with one other female 16-26 in the 1800 census of
Montgomery County.
This is from Page #567 of the 1810 Montgomery County, NC census.
Mary Humble 00000 00001
It indicates that Mary Humble aged above 45 years was the head of a household in Montgomery County. Some of
her neighbors were members of the Randle family. David Humble, one of Jacob's sons, married a Randle. The
Nettles Family
19
indications are that this Mary was Jacob's widow, Mary (probably) Nettles.
Ossie Zeagler states that Mary Humble, widow, was in the Amite County, MS census of 1810. His assumption
was that this was Jacob's widow and that she had gone to Amite County with her son Henry. Considering the state
of travel in those days it seems unlikely that Mary would have been counted in both places even if the census did
not take place simultaneously. It seems most likely to me that the Mary in North Carolina was the widow of
Jacob, and my 4th great grandmother.

married CATHERINE ELIZABETH CUSACK 17 Feb 1734/35 in Petsworth Parish,Gloucester,Va. She was born 1716
in Petsworth Parish, Gloucester, VA.
Notes for GEORGE NETTLES, SR.:
From the Petsworth Parish Vestry Book, Gloucester Co. VA 1677-1793, p. 213: 3 Feb 1728 An indenture
between Samuel Coleman./a> and the Churchwardens to bind out the son of Mary Nettles, 14 yr. old George
Nettles, to Samuel Coleman. Samuel and his heirs were obliged to give George Nettles three years of schooling
or to "carefully teach" that he may read perfectly in the Bible. They were also to provide him with sufficient
meat, drink, washing, lodging and apparel, and to teach him a trade or business so that he did not become a
burden on the Parish. It is interesting to note that the 1728 indenture was for a period of three years, and Samuel
married Ann Mourning Christian in 1731, three years after the initial indenture.
He was indentured February. 3,1728 to Samuel Coleman. Moved to the PeeDee area of SC then onto Darlington,
SC. Many of his descendents left Darlington and moved to Charleston, SC. George was the first Nettles to get a
Kings grant after serving his indenture. He received a grant for 350 acres on Jefferys creek and then Caraven
County. this area was later called Welsh neck.
Darlington County/District is part of the old Cheraw District and
bordered on Marion, Kershaw, Sumter and Williamsburg County. This is where
George Nettles and at least four of his sons settled when he moved to SC from
Va.
George Nettles' brothers Soloman and William both ended up moving to
SC - Soloman lived in Edgecomb County, NC and moved to Sumter District where
Nettles Family
20
his son, William lived. Soloman's brother, William settled in Fairfield
County, SC and was one of the well-known SC Regulators before the Rev. War -
Soloman's son, William was the well known Captain in the Rev. War. (Their
families are often confused)
Your George Nettles of Charleston District's land was very close to
Orangeburg;in fact, some of the plats I'm reconstructing are in Chas, Orangeburg, and Colleton County. Still
nothing on the True Identity of James and George
Nettles; but we do know they acquired huge tracts of land and who their
neighbors were. (nancy - NRPros@aol.com )

Samuel Henry Nettles was born Dec. 7, 1800 and died June 12, 1854. He married Martha Mary Owen. In the July
7, 1854 issue of the South Western Baptist newspaper, we find the following obituary: "Died at his residence in
Germany, Monroe County, Alabama, Samuel H. Nettles, Deacon of Concord Baptist Church, June 12, 1854, after
a painful illness of eight days of bloody flux. Brother Nettles was a native of South Carolina and was born
December 7, 1800, being at the time of his death fifty-three years, seven months, five days old. Brother Nettles
professed religion and with his excellent wife, Martha M. Nettles, was baptized into the fellowship of the Gravel
Creek Church, Wilcox County, in the fall of 1835. In the course of a year or two he removed from the
neighborhood of Gravel Creek to Allenton in the same county (Wilcox), He subsequently moved to Dallas
County, and was a member of the County Line Church. About nine years ago he settled at the place of his
residence."
Three of the sons served in the War Between the States. Thomas Henry Nettles starved to death in prison at Camp
Chase, Ohio. Jesse Nettles was never well after he came home, and George Calvin Nettles was wounded in the
Battle of Manassas, Virginia, but survived to raise a large family. The bullet from his arm is in the possession of
one of his many descendants.

Notes for SUSANNAH C. WHALEY:
‘Records Are Remorseless As Regards Theory’
(So Why Hasn’t the Regicide Theory Been Laid To Rest?)
By J. Weeden, S. Johnpeter and R. Nelson August 1998
For nigh unto 300 years, many bearing the Whaley surname have claimed descendancy from Edward Whaley,
notable for having been the third person to sign the death warrant of Charles the First (Oliver Cromwell was
second). With the restoration of Charles II in May 1660, a price was set upon all the judges’ heads. Some were
granted amnesty, others were beheaded. Whaley, it is recorded, fled to America with his son-in-law William
Goffe and John Dixwell.
Much has been written and speculated about Whaley’s years of hiding in Connecticut and elsewhere. With a price
on his head, keeping a low profile meant saving his neck. Hard evidence by way of empirical documents (court
and otherwise) are sadly lacking during these years and for obvious reason.
However, there is a court document, a will written by Edward Wale of Somerset County Maryland in April 21,
1718, that many researchers erroneously have taken for that made by the Regicide. Unfortunately, 20th Century
researchers have overlooked a series of important articles that sets up and then ultimately squashes the Wale-as-
Regicide theory. We will add an additional punch.
One promoting Wale-as-Regicide was Robert Patterson Robins. In the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and
Biography (Vol. I, 1877 p. 55), Robins includes his own ancestor’s affidavit as to the identity of Edward Wale:
"As most men wish to know something of their ancestors, and as I have from authentic documents and direct
tradition, collected a number of facts relative to my ancestor Edward Whalley, otherwise Edw. Middleton, ye
regicide, I desire to set down here ye facts concerning his life and death in Maryland.
Edward Whaley was born in Northamptonshire, England, about 1615, and married Elizabeth Middleton: soon
after he joined in ye rebellion, under Oliver Cromwell, and was one of ye judges yt condemned king Charles ye
first, and at ye restoration of Chas. ye second (1660), he fled to America with many of his misguided companions:
Nettles Family
37
he went to Connecticut, and there lived in concealment until ye reward offered by ye Crown of England made his
residence amongst ye Yankees unsafe, and he then came to Virginia in 1681, where two of his wife’s brothers met
him with his family: he then traveled up to ye province of Maryland and settled first at ye mouth of ye Pokemoke
River, but finding yt too publick a place, he came to Sinepuxent, a neck of land open to ye Atlantic Ocean, where
Col. Stephen was surveying, and bought a tract of land from him, and called it Genezar; it contained 22 hundred
acres, south end of Sinepuxent, and made a settlement on ye southern extremity, and called it South Point, to ye
which place he brought his family about 1687 in ye name of Edward Midleton; his owne name he made not
publick until after this date, after ye revolution in England (in ye yeare of our lord 1688) when he let his name be
seen in publick papers and had ye lands patented in his owne name.
He brought with him from ye province of Virginia, six children, three sonnes and three daughters. He had one
daughter, ye wife of his companion Goffe, in England. His sonns were John, Nathaniel and Elias, his daughters
were Rachel, Elizabeth and Bridges. Nathaniel Whaley married and settled in Maryland, John Whaley went to ye
province of Delaware and settled, and his family afterwards removed away from ye province to ye south. Elias
Whaley married Sarah Peel, daughter of Col. Thomas Peel, and died leaving one darter, Leah Whally, and she
married Thomas Robins 2d of ye name, and died leaving one son Thomas Robins 3d of ye name, ye deponant.
Edward Whalley’s darters all married; Rachel married Mr. Reckliffe, Elizabeth married Willm. Turvale, and
Bridges married Ebenezer Franklin. Col. Whaley lived to a very advanced age and was blind for many years
before his death. He died in ye yeare of our Lord 1718, age 103 years. His will and yt of his sonne Elias, we have
here in ye records. His descendants are living here in ye province but hold to ye established church, for ye which
they ever pray ye divine protection. So died Whalley ye regicide. Had he received yt due to him, he would have
suffered and died on ye scaffold as did many of his traitorous companions. Viva rex."
Thomas Robins, 3rd of ye name July 8, in the year of our Lord 1769
In Vol. 1 #2 of the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography (1878), doubt is cast upon the Wale as
Regicide due to many inconsistencies as pointed out by W. H. Whitmore and Edward Neil, which prompts Robert
P. Robins, great-great-grandson of Thomas Robins, to respond. By the time Vol. IV #1 pp.258-260) issue of the
Pennsylvania Magazine rolls off the presses in 1880, Robert Robins RETRACTS what he and his ancestor have
maintained, that Wale was the Regicide:
"In No. 1 of vol. I of the Magazine, I put before you certain facts relating to the History of the celebrated Edward
Whalley, including among them a paper written by my great-great-grandfather Thomas Robins, 3d, of South
Point, Worcester County, MD. Upon the assertions made in this paper I based, as may be remembered, an
argument tending to prove that the Regicide died, not as was formerly thought in New England, but rather on the
Eastern Shore of Maryland. In a later note upon the subject I claimed for this first paper that it was purely
tentative in its nature, and intended to bring out, as indeed it did, certain evidence which was unattainable to me in
any other way. It was in this spirit that I answered all the arguments which have been brought against my theory
opposing them only in that they did not sufficiently meet the facts upon which my argument was based. But at the
same time I could not but see that there were certain points in which that argument was weak, either from a
deficiency of concurrent evidence, or from too great a demand upon possibilities. For this reason I have never
regarded my theory as satisfactorily proven, although to my mind, it was worthy of more investigation than I had
been able to give to it.
For this reason, I entered into a correspondence with the clerks of Somerset and Worcester counties, Md., to
ascertain, if possible, whether the deed conveying Genezar to Edward Whalley was in existence. It will be
remembered that Genezar was a tract of 2200 acres, bought by Whalley of MD from Col. Stephen (or Stevens)
and in which South Point Whalley’s house was located. Both Mr. Geo. T. Brattan, the clerk of Worcester Co., and
Col. Levin L. Waters, who occupies a like position in Somerset, wrote me that they were unable to find any such
deed of transfer. I had therefore given up as an impossibility the idea of using such collateral evidence, when a
few days ago I received a letter from the Rev. L.P. Bowen, of Newtown, Worcester Co., Md., which contains data
which cause me materially to modify my statements in my first paper.
Mr. Bowen is a descendant of William Bowen, who was a witness to the will of Edward Whalley (see Penna.
Magazine, vol. I, No. 1, p. 66) and also of Ebenezer and Bridget (Whalley) Franklin. In the course of some
researches he has discovered several documents which throw some light upon the history of the Whalleys of
Md...:
Nettles Family
38
"1. Deeds of a division of a tract of land between Edward Wale and Charles Ratcliff dated 1681 (‘near ye heads
of ye branches of ye Assateaque River’) patented to the same two in common in 1679.
"2. Another division of another tract of land called Jenezar (so spelled) of 2200 acres, granted to the same in 1679
and also divided 1681.
"3. A parcel of land on north side of Pokemoke patented to George Wale in 1658, another part in 1668, and both
conveyed by George Wale and Lewis his wife to Edward Wale in 1678."
Now as far as these deeds go the dates tally sufficiently well to support the Maryland theory as to the burial place
of the regicide. It will be remembered that the last accounting of Whalley in New England is contained in Goffe’s
letter to his wife in 1674 (Penna Magazine vol. I. p. 58) and that it was claimed by the writer that Whalley left
New England and appeared in Virginia in 1680 or thereabouts. This George Whalley mentioned in the deeds of
transfer might have been a cousin who was holding the lands for Whalley and his heirs, and so the theorizing
might have gone on ad infinitum.
But records are remorseless as regards theory, and Mr. Bowen has discovered still more evidence to the detriment
of the Maryland hypothesis. This consists of the entry in the Court Records of the marriage of Edward Wale; it
reads as follows:-
"Edward Wale and Elizabeth Ratcliff were married at Pocomoke by Mr. Wm. Stevens, one of his Lordship’s
Justices of the Peace, for ye county 29th of January, 1669."
i.e. five years after the removal of Whaley and Goffe to Mr. Russell’s house at Hadley (Ma.) and five years before
the mention by Goffe in his letter of Mr. R (presumably Richardson, the name assumed by Whalley).
Appended to this entry is another containing the dates of the births of the nine children born to his marriage, viz.:
1) John b. at Pocomoke, Dec. 2, 1669; 2) Sarah b. at Pocomoke Feb. 4, 1671; 3) Elizabeth b. a Sinepuxent, Aug.
25, 1677; 4) Charles b. at Sinepuxent Feb. 20, 1679; 5) Bridget b. at Sinepuxent Oct. 8, 1681; 6) William, b. at
Sinepuxent Dec. 26, 1683; 7) Nathaniel b. at Sinepuxent April 8, 1686; 8) Rachel b. at Sinepuxent Nov. 15, 1688
9) Elias, b. at Sinepuxent, Jun. 28, 1691.
Such is the case which I have made against myself. But I cannot persuade myself to disregard entirely the
evidence contained in Robins’ Narrative of 1769. However full of error it may be, it is evident that Thomas
Robins 3d in writing that paper was penning only what was current tradition with regard to his ancestor and the
ancestor of so many families on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Independent of the account furnished by this
narrative it has always been believed and it is even now universally accepted on the "Eastern Shore" today that
the regicide died and was buried at South Point. But like all traditionary evidence it has been confused and much
that is untrustworthy has been added to it. For this reason I have always carefully refrained from introducing any
such evidence into my arguments on the subject, trusting only to the documentary evidence which was available.
But where there is so much smoke there must have been some fire. Undoubtedly the Edward Wale of Maryland
was of the family of Edward Whalley, the regicide, and most probably he was his son (as has already been
suggested...). The fault, then, of the Robins Narrative would be that of confusing two generations, of losing sight
of the father in 1664, and of confusing him with the son in 1678; a not unnatural mistake after the lapse of a
century.
Were I inclined to go a step farther, I would state the case as follows: In 1660 at the Restoration Whalley was
obliged to fly from England to the Provinces to escape the vengeance of the King. After many times narrowly
escaping capture, he settled at last at Hadley at the house of Mr. Russell. In 1665 Edward Whalley, the younger,
followed his father to this country, but avoiding New England, settled in Virginia, and afterwards in Maryland. In
1680 Edward Whalley, the elder, left Hadley, journeyed to Maryland and joined his son, with whom he lived until
his death a few years later. Edward Whalley, the younger, died in 1718. But this would be all theory without any
facts save alone possibility to support it. It would be safer to say that Edward Wale, of Maryland, was a near
relative, presumably a son of the Regicide, and that we know nothing certainly of the latter after the date of
Nettles Family
39
Goffe’s letter in 1674. So much I think may safely be conceded."
Robert P. Robins, M.D. Phila. May 24, 1880
So it would seem that this Robins in 1880 admitted from the facts presented that the paper his ancestor wrote in
1769 was incorrect. However, Robins was wrong in inferring that the two Edwards were being confused one with
the other. In the Rev. Samuel Whaley’s "English Record of the Whaley Family and Its Branches in America"
(1901), the author writes that the Regicide’s son Edward was born in 1657 (p. 88). The Somerset Co. MD
marriage records show that Edward Wale/Whaley married Elizabeth Ratcliffe in 1668/69. The Regicide’s son
would have only been 12 or 13 years old.
So who was this Edward Wale?
In a publication of abstracts of Lancaster Co VA wills is a July 1674 accounting of George Wale’s estate, part of
which was in Pocomoke, Somerset Co MD. It mentions Edward Wale, his brother. If this were the Edward Wale
who married Elizabeth Ratcliffe -- and IF we are to believe the designation of brother as we know it today -- this
would establish a relationship between those two men. From published accounts of the names of children of
Edward the Regicide, there was no son listed by the name of George. The Edward Wale/Whaley who died 1718
in MD had among his children, a son named Charles. Would the Regicide or his son have given a son the same
name as the Monarch from whom all their problems originated?
The Robins Narratives further were referenced in Clayton Torrence’s 1935 book, "Old Somerset on the Eastern
Shore of Maryland," in which he writes: Edward Wale was in the Pocomoke section when Somerset was created
August 1666. He first owned and lived on lands ("Aquintica" and "Springfield") on Pocomoke River which had
been conveyed to him by George Wale and Lewis, his wife. These lands Edward Wale sold to Thomas Newbold
and removed about 1678 to the Sinepuxent section on the seaboard side. Edward Wale (d. 1718) m. January 29,
1668/9 Elizabeth Ratcliff (sister of Charles Ratcliff of Somerset County), and had issue 1) John, 1669; 2) Sarah,
1671; 3) Charles, 1673; 4) George, 1678, 5) Elizabeth, 1677; m. William Turvile (or Turvill); 6) Bridget, 1681,
m. Ebenezer Franklin; 7) William, 1683; 8) Nathaniel , 1686; 9) Rachel, 1688; 10) Elias, 1690-1720 (IKL; O 5,
p. 358; O 18, p. 18; Md. Cal. Wills, IV, p. 165, and V, p. 44). The Wale, or Whaley, family, of Somerset County,
for many years made claim (traditionally) to descent from the celebrated Edward Whalley, "the Regicide," but
finally abandoned the claim. In Penna. Mag. Of Hist. And Biog. IV, p. 258, appears a letter by Dr. Robert P.
Robins, May 24, 1880, in which the evidence against this claim is well summed up.
In 1956, William B. Barton wrote A Limited Study of Descendants of Maj. Gen. Edward Whaley, promoting
Edward Wale as regicide, but making no mention of Torrence or the LAST Robins letter, which abandons the
lineage set forth by others for Edward.
There may be no way of finding out the absolute truth for any of this early Whaley line. Certainly, most people
want to establish direct descendancy from Edward, the Regicide, for it has great sex appeal civil rights, kings,
beheadings, manhunts. Great copy, but unsourced and unsubstantiated.

Author: Lynn Haltiwanger Date: 10 Mar 2003 6:27 PM GMT
Surnames: Whaley, Gibson, Nettles
Mary Whaley of St. James Goose Creek, SC married a Gibson in the early 1800's. She was the daughter of
George Powell Whaley, Sr. and his wife Mary. She had three siblings that are listed in their Mother's will. The
will states that the mother left property to the children of Mary Gibson, which probably means that she was
deceased. Mary's sister, Susannah married James Cree Nettles and moved to AL. Her 2 brothers stayed in SC. Am
looking for any info on Mary Gibson, her husband and children. Thank you, Lynn Haltiwanger
. The old Whaley property is now owned by Alcoa Aluminum but I have access to the grave sites. My 2 brothers
and I are planning on cleaning up the grave sites to see if we can find George Sr. In the early 1800's the property
ajoining the Whaley Plantation was owned by George Nettles and James McNish. Thanks ahead for any info you
may want to share with me. Charles Michael Whaley Goose Creek SC 843 572-8119

Notes for HEZEKIAH NETTLES:
Hezekiah married two White Sisters and then their niece. Knowledge of him surprises us in the family because
our former information was that Tabitha Elizabeth maiden name was Malone. Gerald E. Forsythe of Lufkiin,
Texas informs us that Tabitha was previously married to Drury Malone and is in fact the daughter of Hezekiah..
The Nettles go back to England and the first documented record was in Virginia in 1852.
He and his family moved to Tenmnessee and then to Marengo County, Alabama. He was one of the founding
members of the Nanfalia Baptist Church, Marengo County on April 4, 1831. He bought land at the Demopolis
land office in 1835.

Prisoner. He married JUDAH ANN RIKARD 13 Jun 1857 in Alabama. She was born Jul 1836 in Monroe County,
Alabama, and died Aft. 1910 in Alabama.
Notes for THOMAS HENRY NETTLES:
Thomas Henry Nettles enlisted on March 17, 1862 in Company G, 36th Alabama Infantry. At the time of his
enlistment he was 29 years old (two weeks before his 30th bithday) and described as being 5` 10" height, fair
complexion, blue eyes and light hair. He was promoted to 1st Corporal on December 1, 1862, promoted to 4th
Sergeant on March 1, 1863 and promoted to 2nd Sergeant on Nov. 1, 1863. He was captured at Nashville in 1864
and taken to Camp Chas Ohio. On March 25, 1865, shortly before the end of the War, he died at Camp Chase.
His cause of death was starvation. This is attributed to the improper inhumane treatment he received as a result of
the Secretary of War`s directive to northern prison authorities to reduce food, fuel, clothing and shelter to all
Confederate prisoners. A runner was sent to tell his family of his death.
Nettles, Thomas H. Near Columbus, Ohio, is the Camp Chase
Confederate Cemetery were 2,260 marked graves remind us of the
ultimate price these soldiers paid. Kept with the silence of the dead
are the many untold stories of these brave men of the 36th Alabama
that had left their families for glory, adventure, or simply to defend
their homeland. Fortunately, the great-grand niece of one of these
soldiers was able to share something of his life.
Thomas Henry Nettles, a handsome young man farmer from
Alabama, was 5Ùu 10ÙT tall with a fair complexion, blue eyes, and light
colored hair. Thomas Nettles was born on June 30, 1832, in the
Chesterfield District of South Carolina. On June 13, 1857, he married
his sweetheart Judah Ann in Buena Vista, Monroe County, Alabama.
Just before his thirtieth birthday, he made the difficult decision to
leave behind his wife, son and and enlist in Co. G of the 36th
Nettles Family
57
Regiment of Alabama Volunteers. Nettles mustered into Company F
as a Second Sergeant on March 17, 1862. Sergeant Nettles was
captured at Nashville in 1864 and taken to Camp Chase as a Prisoner
of War. Sadly, mere weeks before the end of this terrible War,
Thomas Nettles died on March 25, 1865. Somehow, a runner was
sent to Alabama to tell his wife and family of his death in Camp
Chase.
The mortal remains of Thomas Henry Nettles lay buried in Row 34,
number 21, grave number 1,569 in the Camp Chase Cemetery.
Thomas Nettles did not suffer a wound before being captured nor
was he ill with dysentery or small pox: he died of starvation. This can
be attributed to the improper and inhumane treatment he received as
the result of Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton's directive to
northern prison authorities to reduce the food, fuel, clothing and
shelter of all Confederate prisoners to that which he deemed
comparable to Southern prisons.
After the War, his twenty-seven year-old widow, affectionately
known as Aunt Judy, cared for their son and daughter along with
three other orphaned Nettles children. Judah never remarried. Judah
Ann Nettles lost her young husband, her two brothers-in-law and all
five of her own brothers in the War.This Southern lady, called a
ministering angel by her family and neighbors, always maintained a
cheerful attitude. Beginning in 1913, Aunt Judy received a small
Confederate pension from the State of Alabama. She was
eighty-seven when she died while visiting her son in Peterman,
Monroe, County, Alabama. The dedication and sacrifice of her
husband and the sixty years of ministering to others in her
widowhood are remembered by her family today. Judah Ann Nettles
rests in the Rumbley Cemetery in Peterman, while her beloved
Thomas Henry Nettles lays in Camp Chase Cemetery, far from his
Southern home and those that loved him.

Burial: Row 34,number 21, grave number 1,569 in the Camp Chase Cemetery.
Notes for JUDAH ANN RIKARD:
Judah Rikard Nettleslost her husband and all five of her brothers in the war. She received a small Confederate
Widow's Pension in 1913 from the State of Alabama. Sergeant Thomas Henry Nettles rests in grave number 1569,
grave position 21, row 34 in the Camp Chase Cemetery in Columbus, Ohio.
I would like to note that there is a picture of him taken while in uniform and the original tin is still in the
Nettles/Rikard's hands.The Rikard history will be added at a later date as the Rikards are in our direct line. Judah
Rikard was the sister to Mary Ellen (Helen) Rikard who married our g-grandfather Samuel Henry Hazlewood
Nettles. Judah (Aunt Judy) helped raise his three boys after the death of Mary Ellen.

Judith Rikard Nettles.
According to Lou Ellen Nettles Griffin;
Samuel Henry Hazelwood Nettles was going to School at Springhill College in Mobile and the 3 boys were
going to Barton Academy in downtown Mobile. Uncle Neil hated the iron fence around the school and he would
climb over it and go back home. Finally Henry sent him back to Aunt Judy`s house to live with her. She is the
one that really raised the boys. She is the sister to our Ellen Rikard Nettles. Her husband Samuel Henry Nettles
died in a Yankee Prison. So did all her brothers. If you remember George Rikard grave was located year before
last and we went to Atlanta when the UDC had the memorial service.

Comments:
a. The Sylvester J. Nettles [not Sylvester L. Nettles] on this census is the son of George Nettles and Mary Cree
and he was in Louisiana at time of 1850, 1860, and later census reports.
b. Since Samuel Henry Nettles was a brother to Sylvester J. Nettles, the fact that he named a son Sylvester Jesse
Nettles seems to fit and support the conclusion that Samuel Henry Nettles named one son Sylvester J [Jesse] after
his brother Sylvester J. Nettles.
Note from Janie Nettles Lavender:
It is my understanding that he was named ( middle name ) Hazelwood for a well-liked Methodist minister in
Monroe County, but he changed it to Henry himself and finally became known in the family as Samuel Henry
Hazelwood Nettles.
