    Documents
    Birth Certificate of John Elmer Brose.
    Birth Certificate of John Elmer Brose.
    Joyce says "You'll note that the name is blank on the birth certificate. The story I heard is that my grandmother couldn't decide whether to name him Elmer John or John Elmer, so they left it blank until she could decide. According to family lore, she didn't make up her mind on that until he was about 10 years old, when she settled on John Elmer. That is why his childhood friends always called him Elmer and later friends called him John. He was also called Bud by his mother and most of his cousins. My dad called him Watson when they were young - a result of playing at being Sherlock Holmes and Watson - and this is the name my mother called him. Later, after WWII, my dad changed to calling him Deek (short for Deacon, since John had held the post of deacon in the local VFW - Veterans of Foreign Wars)."
