Dorothy's father, James William Holcomb (b:15 Aug 1867 Whitesburg, KY),
was the son of David &FNU(Elliston) Holcomb. His mother died when he was
very young, so his father (David Holcomb) and his mother's parents raised
him (their name was Elliston - Elliston, KY, is named after their family).
David was a Baptist minister. Dorothy once said that her father remembered
riding horseback 40 miles during the week so David could preach.
They'd barely get home each week til they went back again. James received
his education in Kentucky. He earned a teachers certificate and a law degree
before he made the run to Oklahoma and staked a claim NW of Piedmont,
Oklahoma. He sold Singer Sewing machines on the week ends. When he retired
from school teaching, he was a realtor in Oklahoma City. James's father-in-law,
Manar Dickerson, was a builder. Manar built houses and James sold them.
Dorothy was born in the last house they built. They built and owned all
the houses in that block of I35 at Blackwelder, in Oklahoma City.
Dorothy's mother, Hester Belle (Dickerson) Holcomb, died when Dorothy
was about 30 years old. Dorothy's father, James, died about 6-8 years later.
Dorothy had five brothers and one sister.
