Historical Note

The Pattillo family included Emory Moss Pattillo, an agent for SVEA Insurance Company (Charlotte, North Carolina) and National Union Insurance Company (Chattanooga, Tennessee); his wife Rosa Milledge Pattillo; and their children Emory Moss Pattillo, Jr. and Katharine Milledge Pattillo. Katharine attended Columbia Institute in Columbia, Tennessee, Decatur High School, and the University of Georgia. She graduated in June 1938 with a degree in Home Economics. She married Fred Henry White, Jr. on December 16, 1939. Emory, Jr. attended the University of Georgia, married Helena (last name unknown), and died in 1941. The Pattillos moved to Atlanta around 1937.
