Nettie Ann King, 7 Apr 1885 - 15 May 1959~ My maternal grandmother's first name is somewhat of a mystery to us. We cannot find an official record of it and no one can remember her being called anything but "Nettie". She is listed on my grandfather's WW I Draft Registration as Vernettie, so we use that. She married Arthur Leslie Carmine on 22 Jan 1902 and they had 5 daughters. She lived in Gloucester County, VA her entire life.
Arthur Leslie Carmine, 20 Sep 1885-15 May 1936~ My maternal grandfather Arthur died in a traffic accident when my mother was only 20. He was called "Papa" by everyone in the family. Born on Carmine Island in the York River off of Wicomico, Gloucester County, VA, he made his living as a waterman and a farmer.
