Charlie Giles was the son of Columbus and Virginia Giles.  In the 1900 census the Giles family is listed on the same page as H. L. Richardson, D.T. Richardson's brother.  I am unclear of the "cousin" relationship between Charlie Giles and Esther. Nannie is likely Nannie Lee Farson - Esther's best friend and mutual friend to Charlie and Esther.
