    . . . It was the eve of Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 when Kenneth Marsh Gramm, a strapping, 40-year old Army sergeant with a twinkle in his eye, married the former Florence Marie Scroggins, 28, before a judge in Opelika, Ala.

    The marriage was the third for Kenneth, an accountant, and for Florence, the red-haired daughter of a tenant farmer and sometime Baptist minister from Alabama's Barbour County. Kenneth Gramm, serving in the Army, was stationed at Fort Benning.

    William Phillip Gramm was born at the base on July 8, 1942.

    His parents' marriage didn't last, at least not initially. They divorced. The senator said does not know when or why, only that they were separated when he was small.

    They remarried on June 5, 1945 before the same Opelika judge who married them earlier, court records in Lee County, Ala., show. Dad falls ill . . .
