Birth: Aug. 30, 1896
Walker County

Death: Jan. 25, 1962
Rusk County

Lola Mae Skinner was born on 30 Aug 1896 in Walker County, Texas to John W Skinner and Lelah (Winslow) Skinner. After the death of her mother, her father John married second to Ella Clementine Gossage.

The birth year on Lola's headstone indicates that she was born in 1892, but the death certificate for her indicates that her birth year was 1896. Census records concur that her birth year was most likely 1896.

Lola Mae Skinner married about 1916 to Grover Cleveland Adams. The couple lived first in Caddo Parish, Louisiana where they bore their only child: John Walter Adams.

The family appears on the 1930 census in Franklin, Union County, Arkansas. The 1940 census indicates they lived in Eldorado, Union County, Arkansas during 1935 and in Justice Precinct 3 of Titus County, Texas during 1940. Sometime after 1940, Lola and Grover moved to Laird Hill, Rusk County, Texas. Lola lived here until her death.

Lola Mae (Skinner) Adams died on 25 Jan 1962 in the Overton Memorial Hospital of Overton, Rusk County, Texas. She died at the age of 65 years.
