Mrs. Franklin, I've seen a few of your posts at the Nail and Naill family forums and can no longer restrain myself. The reason I've not replied to your queries sooner is that I was hoping someone more knowledgable of your line would jump on it...But it doesn't look as though that will happen anytime soon, so, if I may, I'll share some things that I've come across in researching my own elusive Naill family. I suspect...and let me make that clear, I suspect, that your particular Agnes Naill is actually a member of the German Nagle family who at what point and for what reason I'm unaware, changed the spelling and pronounciation of their surname to Naill. In early North Carolina there were Naill's who became Neill's and Nagle's who became Naill's and on and on and cutting through them is like looking for a needle in a stack of needles. But, this Nagle/Naill line seems to be well documented and there is no shortage of information concerning them on the internet. If your Agnes (Nagle) Naill is the same that married Andrew Bryson the 1st, 17, Dec., 1783, then she's more than likely the daughter of Christian (Nagle) Naill and Anna Gottschall, at least that is according to most sources that I've seen. Bride: Agnes Naill, Groom: Andrew Bryson, Bond date: 17, Dec., 1783, Record # 01 044, Witness: Majer Wylie, Bond No.# 000123255. I hope this has been of some assistance Ma'am.
