My father, Charles McAlpin Pyle, Jr. was an only child.
His mother, Elizabeth Adsit (known as Libby to us grandchildren), was one of two children; her brother never married.
Libby's father, Charles Chapin Adsit, was one of seven children, and the only one to have grandchildren. (See More on the Adsit Family for the details.)
Libby's mother, Mary Bowman Ashby, was one of six children, and I don't believe any of her siblings had children who lived to adulthood.
Mary Bowman Ashby's mother, Mary Elizabeth Gorin, was one of seven children, the youngest of whom, Florence Gorin, married John A. Lee.
