    Notes:

    Information from conversations between Katie Douthitt and Joe Robinson (during 2003 and 2004)
    Katie and Elmer met while attending church in Louisville. At the time they met, Elmer was going with another girl. Shortly after meeting Katie, Elmer asked her out and they started going out. Katie said: "After he met me, he got rid of that other girl".
    Katie was attracted to the way Elmer played music in church and he was a hansome man, she said.

    After Katie and Elmer were married, they lived with Bill and Ethel Douthitt for a while with their son Hayward. Record of this was found in the 1930 Federal census as they were found in the household of William Douthitt, Breckinridge County, KY, MD6 ED 14 - 18
