Lula Mae was the wife of Guy Abram Philpott and then Guy Clifford Barker. With Philpott she was the mother of 7 children: Clara Mae, Shirley Fred, Roye, Loye, Elmo Gene, William Alex and later, another son, John, who was given to a family in Dallas when Lula Mae found that she was with child after leaving Philpott a second time when they were unsuccessful at a reconciliation; and with Barker, another 4 children: Willa Mae, Guy Clifford, Jimmie Lloyd & Peggy Ann.
Lula Mae White Philpott Barker died of cancer the day before her 42nd birthday in September of 1950.
Her six oldest children were raised by their father, Guy Abram Philpott, near Cave Springs, Arkansas, and her youngest four children were all adopted outside of the family just prior to her death (four children, three adoptive families in Texas) with the help of Beral Nadine Cole Hance (mother of Texas Congressman Kent R. Hance).

It is believed that the reason that Guy Clifford Barker was unable to keep his four young children at that time was because he either had charges pending or had already been sentenced to serve time in prison for having killed someone (more information to follow) in California.
