Early Family of Wingina, Nelson, Virginia
(African American line)

This is just an introduction to the Early family connection.

Let's begin again, with Gracie Nicholas. (See "Rose" family line).
As mentioned on the Rose family page, Gracie (daughter of Washington Nicholas, and Julia Allen Shipman) married Charles Early, after the first wife of Charles, Bettie Shipman (daughter of Julia Allen Shipman, and Julia's first husband Abram Shipman) died.

Charles Early and Bettie Shipman had six known children together. They were: Anna, Minnie, Willie, Gertrude, Edna, and Estell.

There was an old store located in Warminster, Nelson, VA, where many of my relatives shopped on a daily basis, including the "Early" family. This store was called the Frank Russell Moon Store. Below is the brief history of the store, taken from the book "
Heartbeats of Nelson
" written by Paul Saunders, of Saunders Brothers Nursery. Also shown below, is an actual page of the store registry showing my relatives names, as well as their purchases in Sept. 1919.
