Emmett Milford HILTON and Millie Ruth GOTCHER were married in 1924 in TX, Dallas Co.. Millie Ruth GOTCHER was born in 1901 in TX. She lived in TX, Dallas Co., Wilmer on 2 January 1920. Although she is not shown on the 1920 census, her husband and son Milford are living with Emmett's parents in Wilmer, Dallas Co., TX. She lived in TX, Dallas Co., Dallas, 1406 Galloway on 7 April 1930. Her brother-in-law Troy Hilton lived with them. It is not actually known if Millie was Emmett's first wife or not. If Milford is her son, she had him when she was 16. The 1930 census, however, says she was married at 23. Perhaps, if she had Milford out-of-wedlock, this could explain why she is not shown on the 1920 census as living with her husband and child. This is pure speculation.
