... It is my Aunt Virginia who was married to Calvin Nelson. Uncle Cal is now deceased. My aunt and uncle went under the show name of Zeb and Cousin Easy. Uncle Cal had been in show business with his first partner, Mandy. They performed under the stage name "Ma and Pa Perkins," as well as "Zeb and Mandy." After he partnered with my aunt, the record producer misunderstood my aunt's cursive "Z" for a "J," so some of their records were produced under Jeb and Cousin Easy. However, they also performed under the names Zeb and Cousin Easy. My aunt became Cousin Easy at one of my uncle's performances when Mark Denning (of "Teen Angel" fame) wanted her to come up on stage with Uncle Cal. She did not perform with Uncle Cal when they were first married. Mark Denning said to the crowd, "Let's give Easy a big hand. Come on Cousin Easy." Everyone started clapping. She said she was so embarrassed that she came up on the stage and joined Zeb in the act. And so "Cousin Easy" was born.   I have heard her redo the her part of the act in recent years....sounds just the same. (2008 -Jim)  She loves knowing that people are still enjoying their comedy. -Thanks

I have found more info and have one correction for you.
"Cousin Easy" No 1 is inaccurate as the only one using that name in the act was Virginia Robinson Nelson. Cal's first wife was Nova Risner who performed as "Mandy" of "Zeb and Mandy Perkins" Before Nova, Cal performed under the name of "Cherokee Chick" on the radio in Oakland, California. Nova's info: Birth 24 Nov 1911 in Louisiana Death 21 February 1988 in Pryor, Mayes, Oklahoma, USA
