    Smile Who Lived at Graceland With Elvis?

    Hi Everybody,

    I have been wondering how many relatives and friends did Elvis have living with him at Graceland? I have heard of many different versions from the media. It gets confusing. So what do you all think?

    TCB,

    Tommy

    Cool

    Various from time to time, nearly all of the Memphis Mafia lived at Graceland or with him at some stage.

    As for family, Vernon lived there untill he married Dee, Minnie Mae lived there untill her death, as did Aunt Delta. Vernon moved back in following Elvis' passing.

    Billy Smith lived there for a while also, as did Chrlie Hodge, but most of them spent some period of time with Elvis either in Gracelabd, the Circle G, Palm Springs or California.

    Thank you for your reply. He sure was a busy man taking care of so many. I can't imagine all the weight on his shoulders. All that responsible. That has to take a toll.

    Thanks again,

    Tommy

    Billy and Jo Smith lived in a trailer behind Graceland, as did Nurse Tish Henley and her husband, Tommy. Jerry schilling lived at Graceland for years, until Elvis bought him a house in LA.

    Minni1,

    Thanks for the information that's nice to know. I didn't know there were people there in a trailer that's interesting. Do you know who Billy and Jo Smith were to Elvis? Wonder why they had a nurse there?

    Thank You,

    Tommy

    Billy was Elvis' cousin, and Jo was his wife. The nurse was part of Doctor Nic's treatment for Elvis in the 70's.
