Notes for Lulu Henrie Rixey

!US Census 1900 L. Henrie (b. May 1863 - 37) listed with her brother C. J. Rixey (b. Feb 1849 - SEE NOTES for C. J. Rixey)

She was taken into the house of her Uncle John H. Rixey and Marilda Jane Hunton Rixey when her younger brother became severely ill and required his mother's undivided attention. The brother eventually died but the Aunt/Uncle had become so attached to Lulu that they were unwilling to give Lulu up entirely and from time to time she lived principally in the home of her Uncle and Aunt. They had no children of their own. Thus the only daughter of Presley and Mary had practically two homes in which she was the beloved daughter.

She was highly educated and very accomplished. She was unusally tall for a woman, being about 6 feet in height and carried herself most gracefully.
