Thank you for the clarification of the name, and that does help. However, after posting this back in 2009, I had found more information that indicates that E.M.C. (b. 1925) was the s/o James "Jim" Madison Renfroe and Girthy Wood, and thus a younger brother to Chester.
In the 1930 Henderson Co., TN census, it shows him as "Emisie", age 4, as a son of Jim and Girthy. Chester is also shown in the household as a son, age 23, and had not yet married.
In 1940, I see that 14 yr old "E.M.C." is still living with James and Girthy, shown as a son, along with Lester, Audie, Jessie, and Olee, who were still at home.
Chester had married (1931) to Callie Leilar Wood/Woods, and they already had 4 children.......none named E.M.C.
I'd love to compare more information with you on these Renfroe lines. We appear to be distant cousins. I descend from John Henneger Renfroe (b. 1843), who would have been a brother to your ancestor, Thomas J. Renfroe (b. 1854). Please feel free to contact me directly at: email@example.com
I'm always happy to find a new 'cousin', and would be glad to exchange info with you. I'm particularly interested in confirming the names of Chester and Leliar's children and grandchildren. BTW - Which one are you descended from?
