According to her daughter, Blannie, Etta was interviewed by Lowell Blanchard who was a local radio personality on a show called the "Midday Merry Go Round". Etta was a strong Democrat. Lowell asked her what she would be if she wasn't a Democrat. She replied, "I'd be ashamed".

Her granddaughter, LaVerne remembers that Etta was a compassionate person. She could never say no to people in need. She had a large house Knoxville on Magnolia Avenue near the railroad tracks. Once a hobo stopped at her back door and asked for a hand-out. She gave him something to eat and drink . Word spread through out the railroad community of her hospitality. Soon, rail workers and rail passengers were stopping at her door when they were in the Knoxville area. There were so many people that she converted her large home into a boarding house and started renting rooms. LaVerne remembers the large breakfasts that were prepared for the boarders.

39 Carl was in the service during WW II as an artillery man with the 77th infantry division in the Pacific theater. Carl worked at coal mines in TN before and after the service. Carl moved his family to Dayton in 1954. Carl worked for many years and eventually retired from employment with the city of Dayton, OH.

Mary Pauline says that Carl was the clown of the family and made everyone laugh. He contracted chickenpox from his granddaughter which then turned into shingles and his health rapidly deteriorated afterward. He couldn't eat, became dehydrated, and was ultimately on complete life support before his death.
