Jan. 8, 1960 Louisville Jefferson County Kentucky, USA
Elizabeth Bettie Enlow was the daughter of John LaRue Enlow and Mary Jane Kendall. She married John William Peterson 13 Jun 1900 in Hodgenville, Larue, Kentucky. There were no children born of this marriage.
I was lucky enough as a young child to meet and be with my Grand Aunt Bettie. I remember so well, her visiting her brother, my grandfather and his wife, which is where this picture was taken of her. Her hair was longer than the floor. I would watch her when she washed her hair and then she would roll it into a bun at the back of her head. I was always amazed by the length of it. As a young child, I always wanted hair like hers but my mother insisted my hair would be short. My mom kept my hair short and permed all the time, as it was naturally straight.
I remember when Aunt Bettie would come, my mom and some of her sisters would always come out to enjoy her company with my grandmother. This had to be in the early 1950's as she died in 1960.
From all the stories told, she and her husband never had children, so she was always glad when the little ones were among the gatherings. She was a wonderful Grand Aunt. I never met her husband, John William Peterson, as he had died a few years before I was born.
