My mom was still in love with her second husband, Warren Lee Lewis, after she had married her third, Edward Hodge Pegram. It turns out that she had a lieason with Warren Lewis and I was the product. Having no DNA tests back in 1949, she didn't know my paternity. I was told my dad was dead, but after I found the father listed on my birth certificate, Ed Pegram, in 1979, I assumed he was my father. I wouldn't learn the truth until October 2015, at 65 years old. I learned through the internet from my half-sister, Susan Lewis King. Turns out we went to junior and senior high school in Jacksonville, FL, and we didn't know of our kinship. I have four half-siblings in all, two boys, two girls. It was such a taboo at the time, my mom, and grandparents hid it from me my entire life. I never got to meet my real dad, but I knew Ed Pegram 14 months before his death. My mom was questioned about it before her death, but she just said "it's possible." I don't hate my mom for this. In the end of her life she gave me a great gift of a new family to explore. My entire genealogy is wrong on my paternal side. It will need to be corrected.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Agnes' lifetime.

In 1920, in the year that Agnes Lounette (Patterson) Billings was born, on January 1, over 6000 people were arrested and put in prison because they were suspected of being communists. . Many had to be released in a few weeks and only 3 guns were found in their homes. The U.S. Department of Justice "red hunt" netted thousands of "radicals" and suspected "communists" and aliens were deported. But the "hunt" ended after Attorney General Palmer forecast a massive radical uprising on May Day and the day passed without incident.

In 1938, she was 18 years old when on October 30th, a Sunday, The Mercury Theatre on the Air broadcast Orson Welles' special Halloween show The War of the World's. A clever take on H.G. Wells' novel, the show began with simulated "breaking news" of an invasion by Martians. Because of the realistic nature of the "news," there was a public outcry the next day, calling for regulation by the FCC. Although the current story is that many were fooled and panicked, in reality very few people were fooled. But the show made Orson Welles' career.

In 1942, when she was 22 years old, on February 19th, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066. This authorized the Secretary of War to "prescribe certain areas as military zones." On March 21st, he signed Public Law 503 which was approved after an hour discussion in the Senate and 30 minutes in the House. The Law provided for enforcement of his Executive Order. This cleared the way for approximately 120,000 men, women, and children of Japanese ancestry to be evicted from the West Coast and to be held in concentration camps and other confinement sites across the country. In Hawaii, a few thousand were detained. German and Italian Americans in the U.S. were also confined.

In 1983, she was 63 years old when on August 30th, the Soviet Union claimed that a South Korean Boeing 747 jetliner (Flight 007), bound for Seoul from New York City, had strayed into Soviet airspace. Saying that they believed it to be a U.S. spy plane, the passenger jet was shot down by a Soviet SU-15 fighter - after it had tracked the airliner for two hours. All 269 passengers (including a U.S. Representative from Georgia) and crew were killed.

In 1990, she was 70 years old when on April 24th, the Hubble telescope was launched into space after long delays due to the Challenger explosion. An optical flaw was found within weeks of launch but was fixed within three years. The discoveries made possible by the Hubble have contributed to scientists' understanding of the universe.
