Presley, Elvis/elvis's pet chimpanzee "scatter"


Barbara West wrote at 2015-12-05 02:46:41
The chimp was sold to Elvis by owner Bill Killebrew.

Capt. Bill was an artist and had a show on TV.

I was researching his name because I was told he was a famous relative who attended my grandmother's (Emma Bell Barber, wife of John Edward Barber) funeral in Jonesboro, Craighead County, Arkansas. My grandfather had a picture of his Aunt (?) with 3 small sons. He said she married the only Presley around, so there was a possibility that Elvis might be a cousin. Grandpa was,a Lawyer when he was young.
