Children with Charles Wilson Faussett:

  • Isaac Frederick “Fred” (1879-1970) married (1) Mable Edith Dyer, (2) Elizabeth Magdalena DeSmith
  • Iva Ethel (1880-1967) married John Henry Miller

Lucy’s family was from Clark County, Kentucky, but by the time she was born, they had settled outside Lizton, Hendricks County, Indiana. She and husband Charles left Indiana for Henry County, Illinois, between 1900 and 1905. They settled in Welsford, Kiowa County, Kansas, by 1910.

Lucy and Charles both had relatives who had already settled in Kansas—Lucy’s oldest sister, Mary Elizabeth (Rutledge) West, lived just a couple of counties away. Family tradition says that Lucy and her sister came back to Indiana periodically to visit. Lucy died at the age of 91.
