Her mother married Sam Westmoreland while Lula was a small child. in 1903 a family dispute between Sam Westmoreland and Eloise's brother Ellis Clardy resulted in a shooting in which Eloise was killed. In the aftermath of that event Lula and most of her siblings came to Oklahoma, settling in Hughes County.
Lula married Frank Bennett in 1910. They farmed and raised a family, settling in the Penn West addition of Holdenville in the 1920's.
