Birth: Aug. 3, 1872
Death: Jan. 21, 1899

Elena Ann Shanks was the daughter of Elias Shanks and Rebecca Vaughn Shanks. She was born in Slick Rock, Barren County, KY. On Dec 24, 1891, she married Luther Franklin McCubbin. Three children were born to this union: Maymie Atis, Chester Franklin, and an infant son who lived only 21 days.
The McCubbins had a large home and farm just outside of the town of Glasgow, KY.
Elena was survived by her husband and their children Maymie and Chester. A few years after her death, Luther and Chester relocated to Oklahoma, and Maymie stayed in Kentucky with her Shanks grandparents, eventually moving to Oklahoma in her golden years.

Note: A very sincere thank you to Laura J. Stewart for finding the original obituary for me.
