Katherine Lightcap Jones Cuadra was born in Offerle, Edwards Co, Kansas on 30 April 1926 (her grave has the incorrect death year). She was daughter of Mildred Violet Orr Lightcap and Reuben Gilson Lightcap.

She married first to Robert C Jones before 1950 and was divorced in 1959. In 1961 she and her son Larry (don't know where the other children were) moved to Emporia from Hutchinson, Kansas. Her step-mother's obit listed her as Katherine Jones in 1963. There was a news account of Katherine Jones filing for divorce against Robert C. Jones in the Friday 24 Feb 1956 page 2 issue of the Garden City Telegram paper. It was three years later they actually divorced on 13 Oct 1959.

Katherine married second to Benjamin H Cuadra before 1965. He was born 3 March 1934 in Homewood, Kansas.

Katherine died in Emporia, Lyon, Kansas at age 65 on 24 June 1991. Benjamin H. Cuadra died 15 January 2002 at age 67 in Topeka, Kansas. They are both buried in Highland Cemetery, Ottawa, Franklin, Kansas. (His VA grave site says he was US AIR FORCE and buried in Waverly Cemetery, Waverly, Kansas.)

Benjamin was married previously before Katherine and again after Katherine. Katherine and her first husband had three children.
