  • Notes 
    • Charles Jackson Raffield was born November, 18, 1860 in Eastman, Colquitt County, Georgia, and died September 25, 1928 in Farmdale, Florida inside Tyndall AFB.

      He married Nancy Ann Rodgers November 6, 1879. About 1895 Charles Jackson Raffield left the farm at Eastman, Georgia and moved to Florida. He made his way to Live Oak, Florida where he lived for a short time while building a church. From there, he went to Frank and Sneads to build Baptist and Methodist churches. From Sneads, he moved to Jackson Bluff (named after him) on the Ochlocknee River, near Bloxam. He trapped otter and alligators, skinned and cured the hides and shipped them. He moved to Wetappo Creek where he began to fish. During this time, living in an isolated area, he could not get a "bought" cast net. His wife Nancy crocheted his first cast net at Wetappo Creek. It was some time later before he found where to special order the twine for making nets.

      In 1900, the family moved to Auburn. By this time the family had increased to include Cullen, Susie, Clayton, Lacy, Ethel, and Henry. He continued with his trapping of otter and alligator, increased his fishing skills, and dealt in lumber and turpentine. Charles Jackson Raffield's first large fishing boat was the Isabelle, a 45ft sailing yawl. It had a two-cylinder Wolverine engine. He built the Isabelle at Auburn on East St Andrews Bay. The "Big Liz" was a seine skiff used with the Isabelle to haul the seine for the strike. His second big fishing boat was the "Hypnotist", a 55 foot schooner with a 16 foot beam. He bought it in from Mississippi where it was used as an oyster boat. In 1916 came the "Sea Queen".
