Descendants of Jesse Cravens

Generation No. 5

10. LULU BELLE5 CRAVENS (JESSE P.4, JESSE3, JESSE2, JESSE1) was born September 14, 1884 in Richwoods, Ill., and died January 25, 1920 in Palestine, Ill.. She married NOAH MONROE DEVORE October 09, 1900 in Knox Co. Ind., son of WILLIAM DEVORE and ? ???. He was born July 08, 1872 in Oaktown, Ind., and died May 05, 1947 in Palestine, Ill..

Notes for L
ULU BELLE CRAVENS:
Lulu's mother (Elnora Gannon Craves) had already filed for divorce from her father long before Lulu was born. I can't find a final decree anywhere, however, so the divorce may have never been finalized. Lulu's birth certificate, however, just has a dash drawn thru where the father's name should be. Lulu claimed Jesse as her father, however, in her marriage return. Lulu was listed as the third child born to Elanora, probably her older sister who died young being one of her predecessor. Andrew Jackson Cravens (her brother Jack) wasn't even born yet.

I have been told that Lulu was "short and rather heavy". The only picture that I have doesn't really show it, but it would fit with Noah being so short. She died shortly after the birth of her sixth child from uremic poisoning (kidney failure) that was a result of the birth of her 6th child. She was said to have been related in some way to the "Kimberlin's" of Crawford Co. but I suspect that is because her brother Andrew Jackson Cravens married Ola Kimberlin. However, there may be other connections.

In Lulu's obit it is stated " She united with the M.E. church at Green Hill at the age of 15 years." she died from uremic poisoning less than a year after her sixth child Leona was born. She was 35 years, 3 months and 11 days old when she died.
