  of 1800

Here's what I've gathered so far relative to my Uncle, Wren W. Carlisle's family. Wren married Ruby V. Williams, daughter of Rose Lee Teel and John Wallace or William Wallace Williams. If anyone has any information about this family or families, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

James Carlisle was born in Ireland but lived in Loudoun County and his profession was that of farmer/tobacco planter. he moved to HIghland County, Ohio in 1800. Does anyone know who his father was? I think he married twice...Nancy Williams and Saah Reno. Eugenia Kettering, posted 05/19/02

Blown to Ceiling - W.W.

He was on top of the tank and had just opened the hatch. The explosion occurred in a shop at 3137 K St, NW. A cousin, Jesse Carlisle of 1728 Wisconsin Ave, was in the shop, as was Milton Redman. According to Mr. Redman, Wren Carlisle had roomed with him for a number of years, once in Columbus, Ohio. Redman carried Carlisle's body from the shop and at 10:10 a.m., he was pronounced dead by Dr. John Shadid of the Emergency Hospital Ambulance. Dr. Magruder MacDonald, coroner, issued the certificate of accidental death. His son, Lawrence Carlisle of 1504 33rd Street, NW, was notified.
