Several of Lula’s maternal relatives lived in Washington. Her grandmother, Nancy, her uncles, Lewis and William, her aunt Lillian, and at least three cousins, Roy, Pearl, and Daisy. Daisy was born in May 1877 in Iowa and married Gilbert T. Farrar on September 21, 1897, in Creston, Iowa. By 1900, she was living with her uncles and sister in Grand Coulee, Washington, and was working as a housekeeper. In 1904 she married a Boston electrician, Harris Wood, and by 1920 they had settled in Long Beach, California.
Daisy’s younger sister, Pearl (whose first name was Jessie), married Charles Saltmarsh in 1902 and they had a daughter, Hazel. Sadly, Pearl passed away in 1913.
