Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

Lucinda's parents were John and Elizabeth (_____) Crowell. [obituary-jennie-spear-1923]

Lucinda may have been born in Franklin County, Indiana. [research-a-spear-family-history]

Lucinda and James Stevens moved to "northwestern Kansas" toward the end of his life. [obituary-jennie-spear-1923]

Lucinda and William Spear may have married in Chardon, Rawlins County, Kansas. [research-a-spear-family-history]

She was survived by a sister Martha Ellen Cox (Sutherland, Nebraska). Four other sisters and three brothers died before her. While she was survived by numerous nephews and nieces, William Ogden (Long Beach, California) was explicitly called out since Lucinda had raised him since he was a baby. [obituary-jennie-spear-1923]

She was probably buried in Hermon Cemetery. [research-a-spear-family-history]

The Hermon Cemetery is probably Hermon Methodist Cemetery, which is across the street from Hermon Christian Cemetery. I don't know if they were once joined administratively.
