Nettie McGary was born in 1860 in Uvalde, Texas, to Maj Daniel Leonidas McGary and Martha Jane Summers. Nettie's father was an officer in the Confederate States Army during the Civil War. Afterward, he owned and edited the Southern Banner in Brenham, Texas. The McGary family moved from Uvalde to Washington County, Texas: first Independence where they lived at the Clay Castle with relatives, then Brenham, and finally Chappell Hill. Little Nettie died of typhoid fever, 1869, nine years old, in Chappell Hill, and was buried with her stillborn younger brother, Atreus, on the family's property (possibly near the present location of Brenham's Starlite Drive-In Theater). Her parents sold the land later that year; the deed stated that one square acre was reserved, being the graves of their two deceased children, plus right of way to graves.
