Researched and compiled by Faye Bell (SLC) 2012

 

            Lucy O Tucker was born in Missouri in 1886—her father born in Missouri and her mother born in Iowa.  She met and married George A Boyd on Jan 28, 1915 as per Missouri Marriages Records 1805-2002.  She and George lived in Dallas, DKalb, MO in 1920 but by 1930 were living in Hall, Lincoln, NE.  In the 1940’s the couple moved to Ten Sleep, Washakie County, WY and owned and operated the Ten Sleep Drug Store.  They had no children but after a time, George’s brother Hugh J and his sister Anna M Knapp (and her husband and son Ellis) also moved to Ten Sleep.  Lucy survived George’s passing in 1947, but it seemed that with her in-laws close by she was taken care of in her remaining years.  She passed away in 1961.

 

 

Memories:  Lucy O Boyd was a generously built woman moving continuously behind the counter of the drugstore and supporting her husband in their livelihood.  The drugstore was kept clean and orderly.  Fb
