Lucy Webb was born on the 11 of November, 1873, in Sedalia, Missouri. At the early age of four weeks she was brought by her parents to Texas, they having settled at Collinsville, in Grayson County.
In 1892, as a young lady of 19 years, she moved to Turnerville to make her home with her sister and brother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. James F. Williams, and there Miss Webb worked in Mr. Williams┤ drug store until, 1912 when the Williams family moved to Spur.
