  • Notes 
    • "Kit" came to live with us. His mother died (pneumonia) and left 4 children. Carson (Kit) was the oldest at 6 years. Mom's brother was the father (Main). The children were separated, relatives took different ones. Kit was a shy, bookish , eager to please little guy, two years older than I, so we loved him as if he were a brother. Uncle Otto (Main) didn't remarry for ten years, then Kit went to live with his father and new wife. Uncle Otto was a painter; houses, barns, etc. but his hobby was painting pictures. Scenery for the backdrop curtains for the Opera House, country landscapes and such. However, an artist was considered little better than a "bum" then in Nebo." Source: Irene Hack
