Olie's birth certificate shows he was born at 515 K Street, SE; Washington, DC - was this his parents home at the time of his birth? If Olie's parents were born and raised in Norfolk, VA what were they doing in Washington, DC? Olie has 8 brothers and sisters. His oldest sister, Zola, and at least one of his brothers, James, live in Washington, DC. Zola dies in Washington, DC as does her mother, Ruth L Belote. Olie's birth is attended by a midwife, Mary R Clarke of 50 Myrtle Street, Washington, DC. His birth certificate also shows his father is a brick mason.
