Nettie McGary was born in 1860 in Uvalde, Texas, to Major Daniel Leonidas "Dan" McGary and his wife, Martha Jane Summers. She was named for her grandmother, Statira Nettie McCreery McGary.
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, 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, in the center of the family's property (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.
Thank you, Pamela Sitler, for sponsoring Nettie's memorial!
