    • [Interview with Kit Barnett] [Lillian Roddy Birth Certificate] [Lillian Barnett Death Certificate] [Marriage Certificates]


      Lillian Roddy was born (probably) at her parents home in Aberdeen, Chehalis, Washington, at 11 PM on Hallowe'en, 1912 (31 October).
      Sometime in the mid or late 1930's "Sally", as she was called by her family, married Jesus "Jessie" Escobar, a dance instructor in the Los Angeles area. Jessie was an alcoholic and was physically>
      abusive when he was drunk.
      After that marriage ended in the early 1940's Sally married Vince Barnett in Tijuana, Mexico on 25 June 1955 and they lived in the Beverly Hills, California area until his death.
      On 6 July 1971 they were married again at Los Angeles, California "to be sure they were legally married"
      After Vince's death, "Kit",as she is now called, moved to Grants Pass Oregon. As of November 2002 she lived alone in her house there and is mentally and physically active at the age of 90.
      Kit never had any children.
      **************
