My huge brick wall Lulu ???? who married James Alexander Fox
- I have been trying for a long time to find out any info on my Great
Grandfathers wife Lulu. I will give what I have been told by my
If any one can help I would be forever greatful.
Info on Lulu given hear is all verbal not proven.
I two documents from her children one says Simon for maiden name
other says McFarland.
When Lulu passed away James let a King family raise her. I have met
relatives of this King family but they do not know much either. Just
that her mom was Lulu.
Many Simon researchers say her maiden name is Simon and name brothers
sister and parents but no proof has been found again word of mouth.
All I have for Lulu:
