    Notes 
    • From Leslie Gilbert Christy:

      Yes, my father was 18 years older than my mother, and by all rights, they should not have had children, let alone two, but it happened and I'm quite glad. Mother was 35 when I was born and he was 53! She was 41 when Hugh was born. And of course, Daddy died when I was 6 and Hugh was 18 months old. Tough life for a young widow. Da helped out a lot. And he and Ma-ma virtually supported Aunt Mar too after she divorced Mr. Akers. Lots of grief for a minister's family especially in those times. And of course, my mother had been divorced from Mr. Hughes about 1912 when Brother Stephen was very young, and she went home to live with her parents also. My dad was a Kentucky native son. Incidentally, his mother never acknowledged his marriage to my mother, staunch Baptist people they were and my mother a divorcee. She never considered me her grandchild. She died before Hugh was born, well into her 80's. My dad's first wife died in her early 40's, I think from appendicitis or flu. She died about 1917, maybe 1918 and my parents were married in 1920. His children and his mother thought that was too soon also.
