NOTES: Lydia "Liddie" Plunkett married John T. Doxey on November 3, 1895 in Winn Parish, LA. Different sources report varying birth dates/places for her. The above date is from her grave marker. Her 1900 census record (Natchitoches Parish, LA) indicates that she was born April 1875 in MS. Her death certificate (attached) states that she was born in LA but gives a different birth date entirely.
