Our Hearts and Prayers go out to the Watson Family
Muhlenberg Co., KY (WFIE) - Family members of the Watson's tell 14 News that “The Band Perry” has paid for all funeral expenses for the family.
Family also tells us the hit country music group has paid for hotel rooms for three weeks for the family members in Nashville to visit survivors Chad and Kylie Watson at Vanderbilt University.
Investigators say an electric baseboard heater in a bedroom is to blame for a deadly house fire in Muhlenberg County that claimed the lives of nine people in one family.
The fire broke out around 2 a.m. on Motes Lane in the community of Depoy in the Graham-Greenville area.
Kentucky State Police say the victims are members of the Watson family. The mother, 35-year-old Larae (who also goes by Nikki), 15-year-old Madison, 14-year-old Kaitlyn, 13-year-old Morgan, nine-year-old Emily, eight-year-old Samuel, six-year-old Raegan, and four-year-old twins, Mark and Nathaniel.
The survivors, 36-year-old Chad and 11-year-old Kylie, were flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee where they are listed in critical but stable condition with burns.
Family sources tell 14 News that Kylie is showing some small signs of improvement and may be taken off a ventilator soon. They say Chad Watson is still in critical condition.
Investigators say they found eight of the bodies in the front master bedroom. The ninth victim was found eight-to-ten feet from the rest.
Kentucky State Police say they had to dig through a considerable amount of debris to locate all of the victims.
Family members says the single-story home has been in the family for a long time. We're told Chad's parents built the house.
They also tell us that Chad is a local pastor and has several pastors in his family.
Donations may be made at any Old National Bank location. The account name is Calvary Baptist Church - Watson Family Fund.
Old National Bank has already made a $2,500 donation and is encouraging other businesses to consider making a donation as well.
A benefit account for the Watson Family has also been set up at Commonwealth Community Bank. You can donate to any of the following locations:
First National Bank of Muhlenberg County also set up a benefit account for the Watson Family:

Please notice on the mainpage, under the “Birth Certificates” link, there is now a Birth Records link. I am combining the Birth Certificates and the Births from the Vital Statistics under the one link for Birth Records.
This is an ongoing project and will eventually extend to Death Records and Marriage Records, and the Birth Certificate Index and the Vital Statistics will eventually go away, with the Marriages and Deaths from the Vitals being moved to their respective locations.
Also, I've added to the Birth Records, those records for the year 1910. [I've since realized that the 1910 births are incomplete and am currently working to finish them.]
