    Parents are listed incorrectly. Based on Lucinda's death certificate and census records, I know her mother's name was Annette/Etta/Ettie. Her father's name was John. Lucinda had a sister named Mary and Lucinda's husband's name was Lewis, so perhaps that is how the mixup occured with Social Security.

  • Notes 
    • My mother used to go to her house and spend the night with her, sleep with her in the bed, had bannas in her rice krispies.
    • Her parents were slaves
    • Used to work in cotton fields (according to Bobby)

    • Information from SSDI has her birthplace as Abbotsburg, NC (Bladen County). It also has her birth day as 28 May 1887. However, the OAC-790 form has her birth year as 1893.
