James Nervey Fry and Mamie Jane Atkins, (daughter of Basil Gordon Atkins and wife, Anna) were married on 16 June 1920 in Sperryville,  Rappahannock County, Virginia. Mamie died sometime before 1925. Nervey Fry then remarried to Helen Tharp, (daughter of James and Lilly Tharp) on 30 November 1925, in Laurel Mills, Rappahannock, Virginia. It is believed that Nervey and Helen later divorced, sometime before 1934, and  there is a possibility that he and Helen had a child, Lucille, born in 1928 (as she is listed in a 1930 census with her mother, but the last name given for the child was not sure if this was Nervey's child, or one Helen had after they split up). He again remarried to Rixey Virginia Riley Walters (daughter of William Thomas Riley and Sarah Elizabeth Foster) on 9 March 1934 in Warren County, Virginia. He and Rixey did not have any children together, but Rixey did have at least 3 daughters by a previous marriage. Nervy and Rixey are buried in the Flint Hill Methodist Church in Flint Hill, Rappahannock, Virginia.
