Homer met his wife, Mabel Baxter of Lawrenceburg, at Middle Tennessee State Teachers College where they were both studying to become teachers. They shared an avid interest in education and history, particularly the history of the Civil War. Mabel taught several generations of students in Rutherford County and published three books on local history.
