"Katie Mae" Starnes was the eldest daughter of James D. Starnes and Jennie Hendrix. On 24 Dec 1903 she married Robert Chesley "RC" Liles in Polk County, GA.

Katie's true name may have been Kate Lee or Kate Lou, but her husband nicknamed her Katie Mae and it became her adopted name.

Katie and RC lived for a time in Atlanta near her parents in their early marriage before returning to Polk County and settling in Cedartown, where they remained for the rest of their lives.

Her grandson's wife described her as "the hardest working woman she'd known", and her granddaughter admired her peaches and cream complexion.

Katie was a passenger in a car accident in her later years and lost the ability to communicate clearly.
