Lillian Carlisle was Ashley's niece, the daughter of Orville. In 1889 she married Thomas O Ghrist. On the 1900 census they were living in Penn Twp, St Joseph, IN.

Lydia Bartlett Carlisle was Ashely's sister-in-law, wife of Orville. This letter and previous references to Orville made me wonder if they were separated.

Clara Belle Carlisle was another of Orvile and Lydia's daughters. I wonder what she was doing in Atlanta and how long she stayed there. She married Isaac Sewell about 1896 and was in Nashville, TN by 1910.

Mary Frances "Mamie" Carlisle was the last of Orville and Lydia's children. She married Ashley and Anna's son, Frank.
