He had a relationship with Nancy Sims
PARENTAGE NOT PROVEN - SPECULATIVE!!!
From a letter written 12 Apr 1917 by Mrs. M. A. Reynolds to Fanny Carlisle (believe this to be Francis Josephine Waller Carlisle) "John Carlisle was a planter and a doctor. He owned a large plantation and many slaves. He and wife, Nancy, were both of Scots/Irish descent. Nancy also "doctored". After her husband's death, she moved to Alabama and rode day and night doctoring till she was 98 years old." Source: Sandra Little
They owned land on Simmons Bay which is commonly referred to as the Carlisle Place, next to Ezekiel Haws.
Is the following John Carlyle related to our John Carlisle?

Reason for above deeds. Many of the families who appeared in Bladen and Brunswick counties, such as Faulk and Coleman originated in Edgecombe county, NC. Maybe our John was from there.
Was he the son of Robert Carlisle d. Bet 1808 AND 1815 and Nancy Bell?
Could this be John Carlisle b. abt 1770 married to Nancy Sims and founding father of the Brunswick Co., NC Carlisles?
