Letha Josephine Bennett

Josephine, or Joe as she liked to be called, went to Ohio to marry William Hobson. She met him on a blind date and they were married one year to the day later. It was an interesting marriage, apparently at one time she wanted a divorce and he promised to pay her $7000 to drop the divorce proceeding.

William died in 1911. The same year Josephine went to the very first Indianapolis 500 Race. She attended the race with poet James Whitcomb Riley, and James Allison and Carl Fisher, both of whom financially backed and built the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Josephine died in Indiana in 1977 at the age of 103.
