    • Brothers Raymond, Kenneth and Ralph were all Baptist ministers.
    • My name is Kenneth E Couch Jr born in 1932 son of Kenneth E Couch who was the son of Joseph Page Couch who was the son of Levi D Couch of Wabash County Illinois. My father said his father Joseph P Couch owned a saw mill, general store, and theater where they showed silent movies and his sister Mildred played the piano for the movies.

    • For Joseph P. Couch, born 2/1/1865, Wabash County, Ill. The family members are listed as living in Wabash County, Illinois in 1870 census records. Joseph P. married Margaret Anderson (born 10/17/1868, Ill.) on 2/24/1887. Shortly after they married, they moved west to Oakville, Washington. In 1900, they appear in the 1900 census of Edwards County, Illinois, with one daughter and three sons (all born in Washington). In 1910, Joseph and Margaret were in Jackson County, Illinois, with one daughter and six sons.

      In 1920, Joseph and Margaret were still living in Jackson County, Illinois with four sons. Kenneth Earl Couch (born on 8/27/1904), one of the sons born in Illinois, was now a minister living in Reynolds County, Missouri and married Hallene Mercedes Demson Couch on 10/26, 1927.
