Giles family connections
of Massies Mill, Nelson, Virginia

(Mulatto / African American lines)

This is just an introduction to the Giles family connection.

Let's begin with the marriage of my grand aunt Mary Ann Alice Nicholas, born 1929. She was the daughter of grand uncle James Nicholas, and grand aunt Easter Bolden.
(See "Nicholas family").

Mary Ann Alice Nicholas married John Linwood Giles, Jr. born 1924, in Nelson County, VA. John Linwood, was from Richmond, Henrico, VA

Due to the many African American great migrations to north, I haven't been able to connect this line of the "Giles" family, to the ones residing in Nelson County.

Nevertheless, the Nelson County Giles family lines are still connected through the "Hudson and Morse" relatives of mine, through the marriage of Chlora Ella Giles. She was born in 1894, daughter of Stuart C. Giles, and Sarah Ligon of Massies Mill, Nelson, VA.

Chlora, married Lance Hudson, born 1891.

Chlora's brother Piece Giles, married Bettie Mann Johnson, daughter of Robert Johnson, and Jane Loving. Jane, was the daughter of Boyd Loving, and Catherine Simmons of Massies Mill. This is one of the lines where the "Loving" family connects. Boyd's son James Leslie Loving, born 1868 married Mildred Rose Meade, born 1878 in Gladstone, Nelson, VA - Mildred, was the daughter of Dandridge Meade, and Ellen Payne, sister of my great grand uncle Shadrick Payne who married my great grand aunt, Creasy Allen. (See "Payne family line").

The parents of Lance Hudson, (Chlora's husband)were Abraham Hudson and Sarah "Sallie" Page. Lance's sister Sallie Jane Hudson, born 1883, married Andrew J. Morse, born 1877.

The son of Andrew Morse, and Sallie Jane Hudson, was Douglas J. Morse, born 1904. He married my cousin Ophelia Venable, born 1905. Ophelia, was the daughter of Alexander Venable, and Clarissa Patteson. Alex, was the son of my second great grand parents, Noah Venable, and Susan Tension.
(See "Venable family line").

Here is the marriage of Douglas Morse, and Ophelia Venable:

The "Allen, Coleman, Horsley, Mickens, Rose, Wright, and Woodson" family lines connection through this branch of "Morse" family members.
(See "Morse family line").

Now back to Stuart Giles, born 1864 (father of Chlora). He was the son of Alexander Giles, born 1815, and Nancy Meads. Alex Giles, and Nancy Meads were slaves of Dr. Thomas Massie (owner of the "Level Green" Plantation) in Massies Mill, Nelson, VA - Alex was a baptist preacher and among the original founders of the "Oak Hill Baptist Church". He is buried at the churches Memorial cemetery.

Alex had 6 siblings. We'll take an in depth look at them, in the next chapter, as we examine the entire family line of the African American "Giles" family line of Massies Mill.
