*************************
Obituary said Mrs. Minnie Ussery which was misspelled, it should be Mrs. Minnie Ulrey (she was my ggg grandma)

His obituary did not list every child of his first wife who were still living at time of his death, He married to Cora Erma Catt in Indiana and they had three children, Pauline Knouff, Clarence William Lee Knouff born in Indiana, and Mary E Knouff, John and Cora got a divorce and John left With second wife, Minnie to Alabama, they had daughter, Myrtle who died as infant, sons, Howard, Herbert, Raymond Alva, other daughter with same name, Myrtle who was born in 1905, and Evelyn who was born in 1909. If there is any more other children, I am not aware for I got them out of 1910 US census.
