Re: Pete and Thelma Emert of Kensee, Kentucky

Here is a bit more of Pete Emert's obit.

Southern Illinoisan (Carbondale, Illinois)
20 May 1976, p. 20

Obituary of Pete Emert, d. 19 May 1976 in Herrin, mentions "sister, Thelma Childers of Chester." It also says he was born in to George and Callie Hale Emert in "Kensee, Wickliffe County, Kentucky".

So far, so good; but there isn't a county named Wickliffe in Kentucky, as far as I can tell. George and Callie Emert are in Black Oak Twp, Whitley, Kentucky in 1900. In 1910 George and Callie "Emmet", with Peter and Thelma, are in Blairsville, Williamson, Illinois:

George W Emmet, 51
Callie Emmet, 48
Hester Emmet, 17
Lucy Emmet, 14
Thelma Emmet, 9
Peter W Emmet, 7
Francis Emmet, 4

I can't find a town named Kensee, either. So, I'm going to mark her down as being born in Whitley County and let it go.

Thank you!
