Mrs. Napier Visits Home

While browsing newspapers on the Library of Congress; Chronicling America website, I just happened across a news item of Nashville citizen, Nettie Langston Napier.

Washington Bee newspaper of Washington, DC
August 6, 1910; pg. 5

“Mrs. Nettie Langston Napier, of Nashville, Tenn., is the guest of her mother and brother at the old homestead.”

Nettie’s mom was Caroline Wall Langston of North Carolina.  In the 1910 census, her mom is enumerated with Frank, Nettie’s brother in Washington DC.  Living with the family is also a niece of Nettie’s that is named after her.  At the time, she was 13 years old.   Nettie’s father was John Mercer Langston.
