His father was also an itinerant Methodist minister. When Pete was around age 3, his father's health deteriorated, and the family moved to nearby Magnolia, the seat of Columbia County.
Pete Couch led a crew that raised utility poles for Harvey Couch's new telephone lines in northern Louisiana. Years later, Pete Couch was president of the Louisiana and Arkansas Railway, prior to becoming Kansas City Southern president.
