Adoptive Father:  Albert Roy STRAUB

I think the Cripple Creek birthplace may be romanticized.  At the time Lucy was born, her father was a law student at the University of Colorado in Boulder.  A family letter (by Lucy's maternal grandmother) mentions that Nina came home to her parents in Missouri about a week before Lucy was born and that she was born there.  This is consistent with the fact that Nina gives Missouri as Lucy's birthplace in the 1900 census.

The removal was to place Jeanne with her sister, Barbara, who died 18 Mar 1966, and next to whom, Lucy and Clarence were later buried — it was the great tragedy of Lucy's life that she outlived both her children.
