Dear Edith, I have quite a lot of information on the Nett family, many of whom were early Montana settlers.This J.L. Nett may be James Lloyd Nett b. 1889 Augusta, Montana, died 3 Jul 1988 in Greshom, Oregon, buried in Salem, Oregon.He was the son of Hershal Nett and Anna E. Murphy who had 2 other sons named Elmer and Edward. Anna also was called Annie.They homesteaded in Montana close to my gr. grandfather William C. "Bill" Nett.Hershall and Annie were divorced and she went on to run the ranch with an iron fist, which gave her the nickname of "Queen Anne".She continued to aquire land into the 1940's.I haven't found any land deeds for James Lloyd as I have on the other's, which may indicate the different occupation.I have a cousin who has done a lot of research on them and he has made good progress, as he lives in Montana. He has shared a lot with me.Let me know if you think we could be of any help. Sincerely, Mary Anne (Nett) Smith"Annie"
