According to her children, she and Noah Carr had lived together for many years before finally settling into marriage.

Upon writing the State of West Virginia Vital Records to obtain a Birth Certificate for Lucretie, I had received a return letter that stated, "due to the Civil War, floods, fire many records were destroyed. And her record could not be found."

Her date of birth is taken from the Smith Family Bible. And her daughter (My Grandma) Calora, was given a copy by her eldest sister Sarah. Calora had made copies for her children, her daughter, my mother Shirley gave me a copy of the family Bible and records.

Lucretie died of a blood clot on the brain due to a fall. She was staying with her daughter Sarah at the time of Death. (per Certificate of Death)

Her Great Grandmother was a Shawnee Indian Princess, her name was Gliding Swan, who married Jacob Castle of Castlewood, Virginia.
