Birth: Sep. 22, 1881
Logan County
Ohio, USA
Death: Feb. 10, 1957
Yellowstone County
Montana, USA

Lulu as daughter of Charles G Garlick and Harriet Fawver
born Bellefountain Ohio.

She first married John Edward Kilfoy Jr 16 Oct 1897 Wright Co MO. They separated by 1910 then later divorced Feb 1914.
Wish we knew why as they had 5 kids. He'd been married before too, Ella Julia Smothers and with kids from her too and Julia died with the last one 1894, so it was about
3 yrs later John and Lulu met up and married 1897.
Since he was in Missouri that must been where they met and probably why their lst child Nellie was born there then they headed for the wilds of Montana, WHY? No clue wish I did. They traveled thru Okla, KS and even Oregon, having kids mostly in Okla, until finally arriving in MT. Here many of their descendants stayed, worked, lived and died.
Something else confusing is he never seems to know where he was born. We know his parents were from Ireland but he often put down or someone did as him being born any place from Canada to PA to Ohio, hard to nail down his actual place of birth but likely he was born Canada.
Also to complicate Lulu further, her mother appears to have married a few times too, has half and step siblings.
