Re: Pinkstons in Owensboro Ky

has RT. He was born 18 Aug 1931 and died 27 Dec 1990; LR 42303 (Owensboro, Daviess, KY)

"PaPaw" can mean "Father" or "Grandfather". I'm assuming you are 16 - 24 and you meant grandfather.

Kentucky Birth Index, 1911-1999 (subscription)
says his mother was Rosie Gootee. She has other children and surnames:

(Exact birth date hidden for privacy)

(Name, birth year, surname, number that surname appears)

Dorothy G, 1927, Gottee (1)
George B, 1928, Goatee (1)
Agnes H, 1929, Goatee (2)
Lottie M, 1932, Gootee (2)
Mary J, 1934, Gootee (3)
Billie D, 1936, Gootee (4)
Shirley A, 1937, Gootee (5)
Nellie R, 1938, Gootee (6)
James H, 1939, Gootter (1)
George W, 1941, Gootee (7)
Beverly Gale, 1949, Goatee (3)

She uses Rosie, Rose and Rosa, so if you continue to search, try them all.

This is probably her on the SSDI:

ROSIE PINKSTON, 13 Jul 1904 - Jan 1978, LR Daviess
(Some of the kids are there too, but I don't want to hog all of the fun, so I'll let you look them up.)

Here's the happy family in 1930:

1930: Vanover, Daviess, Kentucky; Roll 742; Page: 5A; Enumeration District: 40; Image: 97.0.

George W Pinkston 24
Rosia Pinkston 25 (Tenn, Tenn, Tenn)
Dorothy Pinkston 3
Agnes Pinkston 11/12

He was 21 at first marriage, she 22, so ~1927.

This looks like George in 1920

1920: Vanover, Daviess, Kentucky; Roll T625_567; Page: 3B; Enumeration District: 50; Image: 771.

Janey [Taney] Pinkston 52
Lizzie Pinkston 12

I can't find Rosie in 1920. There is an ancestry tree that says
Birth: 13 Jul 1904 - Tennessee, USA
Marriage: 24 Mar 1926 - Owensboro, Daviess, Kentucky
Death: Jan 1978 - Owensboro, Daviess, Kentucky, United States of America
Parents: Walter Davis Gootee, Viola Josephine Josie Saddler
Spouse: George W Pinkston

If that is true, this is her in 1910:

1910: Civil District 10, Cheatham, Tennessee; Roll T624_1493; Page: 2B; Enumeration District: 9; Image: 177.

Walter Gater 30
Josie Gater 28
Rosie Gater 6
Frank Gater 4
Walter Gater 1

1910: Magisterial District 5, Daviess, Kentucky; Roll T624_473; Page: 9B; Enumeration District: 44;

Taney Rinkston 43
Ura M Rinkston 15
Martha L Rinkston 13
Hettie B Rinkston 10
Lizzie Rinkston 2
Edd Page 26 [Brother, so we probably have Taney's maiden name]
