This may help some cousin out there.My tie to the Lovvorn family is through my Colston, Bowers, Camp & Eddington families of St. Francois, MO.
I have a death certificate for Walter H. Braddy, b. 18 Mar 1890 at Iron Mountain, MO. His parents were Jasper Braddy & Armenta Moore. He died at Elvins, St. Francois, MO on 12 Mar 1927 from TB.
I have Armenta's, too. Name: Armenta E. Braddy, b. 23 Aug 1863, d. 23 Aug 1939 from cerebral hemmorage. Her parents were William Moore and Elizabeth Wagner.
Bertha Lovvorn was the daughter of James Ivory Lovvorn & Sarah "Sally" Lupkey. Elsie Lucretia Lovvorn was Bertha's sister who married Jesse Prather. I believe this is all correct.
I, also, have a death certificate for a Bertha Emma Wichman, b. 4 March 1888 in St. Francois Co., died 3 Feb 1956 at Farmington. No husband listed, but parents were August Wichman and Fredericka Hoffmeister. This certificate states that Bertha NEVER MARRIED and is NOT Bertha Lovvorn.
The name Lucretia comes from ancestor Lucretia Colston who married John Harvey (Henry) Lovvorn.He died in St. Francois, MO in 1898.They are in the 1880 census, listed under "Jno. Lovens" in Pendleton Twp., St. Francois, Missouri.Lucretia's, parents were my third greatgrandparents.Lucretia is often misnomered as "Teresa" Colston.
