In Reply to: Katherine E. (Earhart) Downs Obituary 1896-1975 by Melissa Barker of 641

Katherine Earhart Downs married Offie Ralls Downs, Sr. They had a son named Offie Ralls Downs, Jr and an other son named John Louis Downs, Sr. (who died a few years before Katherine and Offie, I believe in 1970) John Louis Downs Sr. married Addie (Davis) Downs and had two sons: John Louis Downs, Jr and Richard Downs. Katherine raised her grandson John L. Downs, Jr. I have an old trunk full of Katherine's things and letters. Anyone who has any info or stories on the family would be greatly appreciated!

I do know that Katherine Earhart Downs father was: John C. Earhart and her mother was Eliza McCarty Earhart. I do have a copy of the Earhart Family Bible records which belonged to John C. Earhart.
