After being an orphan she was in the home of several families. The Thompson's were an older couple that she liked being with. She heard a rumor that the Thompson's was going to give her up so she choose to marry rather than live with another family. This happened in Texas. Her brothers & sister wanted to find her, placing an ad in the paper looking for her. Pretending it was for inheritances reasons. Henry went to get her on horse back. He found her in a dugout shack with two baby boys. She wasn't going to leave without them. But he promised to come back for them so she went to Oklahoma with him. He got the fever and died before he could get back to Texas for the boys. They were raised by a step-mother that was not all that kind and thoughtful.
