  • Notes 
    • A Katie Keyes is seen on the 1920 census working for a private family as a cook. Hezekiah used to travel with his father Rev.Charles. It's possible he met Katie during his work for the Lord.

      So far, I have not been able to find many Keyes in the area. Not many leads to go on.

      Katherine Billings Estelle informed us that she heard that Katie Keyes was a school teacher.
    • We don't know very much about Katie Keyes. We have found a 25 year old Katie Keyes on a 1920 Census for(Jackson Ward 3, Hinds, Mississippi).

      Apparently, she was a cook for a private residence while her roommate was a cook for a restaurant. She declares that she was born in Mississippi as well as her parents. This Katie Keyes lived right around the corner from Hezekiah. Hezekiah and Annie May divorced around 1920 something. This is possibly her. However, Katherine Estelle, Rosa's half sister says that she remembers that Katie Keyes was a school teacher.
