Well I have similar records but different information on Emuel Smith's parents.William Smith Hayes b. abt 1838 married 11 July 1863 to Eliza J Shutt b. 5 Aug 1840.One of their children was Effie Jane Hayes b. 18 Nov 1870 (my great-grandmother).Effie’s second marriage to Ed E Smith b. 20 April 1876, produced a daughter Emuel A Smith b. abt 1908.Emuel married Potter Dame and they had a daughter Dolores.Dolores's first husband was Vernon F Hudson and they had a son Rickey L Hudson b. 21 Mar 1953 in Owensboro.I have no other information about her.
I have reason to believe that my "Potter" was actually William C Dame. The April 1930 census shows William C Dame and wife Emuel (Ennie) living next to Emuel's widowed mother, Effie Smith, in Rumsey.Also the death date, Aug 1978, for Potter Dame in the Owensboro Obituary Index (http://obits.dcplibrary.org) matches the Social Security Death Index and Kentucky Death Index for William C Dame.The Social Security Death Index for W Dame also matches your birth date of 10 May 1906 for Clark Potter Dame.I wonder if William C Dame is William Clark Potter Dame.
Thanks for your information.This makes an interesting puzzle to solve.If you have any further thoughts please let me know
