Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 26, 1881
Page County
Virginia, USA
Death: May 2, 1977
Virginia, USA

Lucy was the second wife of James John Comer when they married on March 27, 1907. Her first 2 children, John Franklin Sly and Fannie were born prior to this marriage but are also believed to be the children of Mr. Comer. John Franklin Sly's "Delayed Birth Certificate does NOT contain his father's name and states that "parents were not married to each other at the time of his birth. John Franklin Sly kept his mother's maiden name as his surname; however, Fannie assumed her father's surname of Comer which she had no reason to change when she later married Redford J. Comer.

Lucy's and James' youngest child, Albert Lee Comer Sr. was born June 30,1921, Page Co., VA. As of May 2, 2011 he is still residing in LaVale, Allegheny County, Maryland. He is Maryland's only living true son of a Confederate Soldier.

More details on Lucy's husband, James John Comer, as well as photo and documents, are shown in 2 memorials #10586691 and #38726071.
