Lovick Rochel Ainsworth, the son of William Ainsworth and his second wife, Nancy Crockett, was born into a large household which included half-siblings and 2 brothers, Robert and John. When Lovick was about 12, his father died and about that time, some of his older half siblings adventurously moved to California, perhaps cutting the ties between them. In 1861, Lovick's mother died after leaving a Will in Howard county, Missouri, which named him along with 5 other children as her heirs. Lovick was 18 years old in 1863 when he married his cousin, Martha Jane Ainsworth, and joined the 9th Mo Cavalry (Union) for which he provided his own horse. He was honorably discharged in 1865. After the war, Lovick farmed in several Missouri communities including Franklin, Glasgow, Gillim, Marshall and Odessa, giving up farming eventually to settle in Kansas City. Lovick and Martha celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary there in 1913. Martha died in 1916. Lovick's long life ended in 1936 at the age of 91 and he is buried in Elmwood Cemetery in Kansas City along with Martha and their daughter Anna.
