Lucy (Martin) Foor

Lucy Martin was born October 1872 in Illinois. She married William Frederick Foor (b 1872) in 1895 in Shelby Co., Illinois. "Fred Foor" and "Mrs. Lucy Foor" are listed several times in the "Church Directory of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Tower Hill, Illinois", 1900, as church members and also members of various church groups. The above picture is of "Mrs. Lucy Foor" which was on a page with several other pictures -- no text except for the names -- but titled "choir". The 1900 census shows her husband listed as "day laborer". By 1910 he's listed as a hardware merchant. He died in 1917, and by the 1920 census she's listed as Mrs. Lucy Foor in Tower Hill, a hardware merchant. Also residing with her at that time were her daughter, Ruth GREEN and grandson John W. GREEN.
