Allie Martin Caywood
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Nov. 17, 1867
Texas, USA
Death: Jun. 30, 1900
Rush Springs
Grady County
Oklahoma, USA

Allie was Samuel Culbertson Caywood's (1861 1912) first wife and they had four children:

Harry Ernest Caywood (1892 1970)
Belle Caywood (1895 )
Archie Monroe Caywood (1897 1944)
Martin Culbertson Caywood (1899 1960)

Allie's last child, Martin, was one year and five months old when she died.

We are still searching for Allie's parents whose last name is Martin. It seems to me that whoever gave the information to the person who made the headstone was more interested in who she was married to and how old she was when she died than in her maiden name.

The information for Allie Martin/Caywood was taken from family records and this record of her son, Martin's death:

California, San Francisco Area Funeral Home Records, 1895-1985 about Martin Culbertson Caywood
Name: Martin Culbertson Caywood
Gender: Male
Race: Caucasian (White)
Birth Date: 20 Jan 1899
Age: 61
Death Date: 23 Jan 1960
Spouse: Juanita Caywood
Mother: Martin
Funeral Home: Martin and Brown Funeral Directors

Information was also taken from this record: Web: Oklahoma, Find A Grave Index, 1834-2011 about Allie M Caywood.

Name: Allie M Caywood
Birth Date: 7 Nov 1876
Age at Death: 23
Death Date: 20 Jun 1900
Burial Place: Rush Springs, Grady County, Oklahoma, USA

The dates on Allie's birth in the record above do not add up. Of course, we are puzzled about this because on her headstone it says she was 33 years, seven months and 13 days old when she died.

Subtracting 33 years from 1900 leaves us with a birth date sometime in 1867 - NOT 1876. Continuing with subtracting the months and days from her death date leaves us with a birth date of Nov. 17, 1867.

We are still researching, but two things we have proven are: who she was married to, and who their children are. Her children are my dad's half brothers and sisters.

Samuel Culbertson Caywood's second wife was Lillie Spencer (my dad's mother).
