  • Notes 
    • J.H. Muse was probably married at least one other time. He was said to have two daughters living in Louisiana in 1937 at the time of his death. His wife at the time of his death (Nettie) apparently did not know their names, as they are not listed by name in J.H.'s obituary.

      The 1920 Census entry for Jack Kerwin appears to be J.H.Muse - his daughter Mertie's family is living with him in Little Rock. He has a new wife named Lula, and two daughter - these could be the two daughters who were living in Louisiana in 1937 at J.H.'s death. Why he is listed as Jack Kerwin is unknown, but Diana Wade, granddaughter of Mertie believes this is J.H., as do I.

      I also found a marriage for Hamby Muse in 1893 in Louisiana - he married Mary McCarty on March 27, 1893 in Caddo Parish.
