Fisk 1898 Catalogue

While doing some searching on the Merrys, I found that Google had digitized the 1898 catalogue of Fisk University. In it, I was able to find a little bit of new information about a couple of members of the Merry family, in addition to reading that Ida Napier, sister of J.C. Napier, graduated in the class of 1877.

The catalogues of Meharry Medical College are also going online- currently, various catalogues from 1881-1902 are available.

    Dear Taneya,

    Thank you for your posting on this website which I just happened to stumble upon. I am the great great nephew of J.C. Napier.

    Could you please provide some more detail on Ida Napier, niece to J.C. Napier and Fisk graduate 1877?

    One of J.C. Napier’s neices was Sophia Napier (my Great Grandmother) who married Rev my Great Grandfather Rev. Fred W. Watkins of Tuscumbia Alabama. GGM (Sophia Napier Watkins was the cook for Helen Keller when Helen was a child and I’m trying to find a copy of her picture or any genealogy track on the Napier family – of J.C. Napier and his brothers or sisters or a brother who would have married a Chaney Napier (my GGGrandmother). Appreciate any help you might provide. My email address as follows: tom_mcknight@hotmail.com

    Best regards,
