Nettie came from a very educated family in North Carolina. She had two sisters, Claudia, and a sister she called SIS. Her fathers name was James. I do not know much more about her family and nothing was written.

She eloped with my grandfather Hardie Pilkington, and traveled seven years with the circus because her father did not approve of the union. She met my grandfather coming up a dirt road when she was out walking with her friend. She had no shoes or socks on, which was a big no no, and he fell inlove with her at first sight.

They married and had four children and were married over sixty years. their children are:

Melvin Pilkington
Virginia Leona Pilkinton Smith
Naomi Gray Pilkington Deal Morgan
Hardie Pilkington Jr

Grand mother lived a full and content life. She traveled extensively and loved to make quilts. She loved flowers and would always watch over them when we were in the yard playing. She was a very religious woman. and very strict with her grandchildren. She made the best butter milk biscuits in the world.
