Bio Ida May Lefforge-Cunningham 1875 to 1969

They were "Water Melon Farmers" on their farm near Cleo Springs, OK. Aunt Audrey told me (Vy) that the neighbors taught Price & Ida how to farm water melon.
---- a quote from a letter she wrote in 1961:
" I have been a Practical Nurse and I delivered 64 babies in Oklahoma, Colorado, and Kansas."
---- another quote from the same letter, ref her husband, Price:
"He was a wonderful person and I should know we were married 65 years. He was so kind to me. He always said I never grew up and he was glad as he did not like to visit with old people. His hair never turned gray we have always had young people visit us and enjoyed them so much and they still visit me."

Ida May & Sterling Price were married on 27 Sep 1892 in Walker, MO. They lived many places throughout their marriage. They made there home in Walker, MO for a few years, then moved to Pittsburg, KS, for five years, then to Sherman, OK, from there to Plattville, CO, then to Rawlins, WY, for a few years. Came back to Sherman, OK in 1925, and moved to their last home at Cleo Springs in 1931.
(I remember their last house very well, was a lovely old farm house with a full basement and screened-in sleeping porch. It was surrounded by white sand. I remember playing in that sand and loving to visit. She always had delightfully tasty cooking skills. Even as a child I could tell Ida & Price were still very much in LOVE.)

Together they had six children, Kitty May, John Parson, Minor Vance, Nellie Letitia, Richard Price, Lewis Paul.
