            7…Loucinda born 1879 Va.
            Died: 1951
            I think by the Census records: Lucinda had a child Betty Belcher in 1890
            She was living with parents in 1890
            The reasoning for this is Lucinda stated to census taker she had
            2 children and 2 living in 1900, but only is named in home and
            betty is living with her parents
