Biography* Lucinda (who apparently later changed her middle name to 'Clara') moved with her husband first to Louisiana and later to Arkansas, after the Civil War. Lucinda died 22 July 1896 at Brooken, OK. John W. died 18 Dec. 1887. They moved to Lousiana before the Civil War. John was a Doctor in the Civil War after which they moved to Blackford, Arkansas. I don't know when they moved to Oklahoma, but my grandmother was born in Waldron, Arkansas in 1872.
