Early 1900's thru mid 1970's - Jessie's son, John Carlo "J.C." Nettles kept the Family Traditon alive with his musicial talents. He played the Fiddle & Banjo!
Mid 1900's thru Present - Several of J.C. Nettles' sons "L.C., Jimmy, Roy, William & Earl, played their hearts out on many various instruments. Most all of J.C.'s boys sang and played any instrument you put in front of them. Several of J.C.'s daughters could sing very well.
