A native of Indiana, David Webber "D. W." Booker was the son of William Booker and Merenza Long. The Bookers moved to Carroll County, Missouri in the 1840's or 1850's.
D. W. married Mary J. Mosby on 23 Mar 1865 in Carroll County, and they were the parents of at least 3 children. Their oldest child, James Hugh Booker, was born in 1866; a daughter, Eliza Belle "Lizzie" Booker, was born in December of 1869; and the youngest, Webber C. Booker, was born in 1871.
D. W.'s wife, Mary, died on 23 Feb 1873 at the age of 30. Less than 6 weeks later, D. W. also passed away. At the time of his death, he was 33 years and 6 months old.
The loss of their parents left the 3 Booker children, ranging in age from 6 years down to 27-months-old, as orphans.
The children were taken in by D. W.'s relatives. James, age 6, lived with the family of D.W.'s brother, James and Jane Booker. Lizzie was 3-years-old at the time of her parents' deaths. She was cared for by her paternal grandmother, Merenza Booker. Youngest child, Webber, who was still a toddler, lived with another of D. W.'s brothers, George W. Booker and his wife, Nettie.
Lizzie lived with her grandmother and a maiden aunt, Isabelle "Bell" Booker. Lizzie and Bell worked as dressmakers. Grandmother Merenza Booker died in 1897. That same year, Lizzie's aunt, Bell, married William James Rice.
Lizzie married a carpenter named Robert Abraham Wagaman around 1903. Lizzie and Robert lived with Bell and William Rice into the 1910's. Neither couple ever had any children.
