I have a mystery ...

I have been told Lula I. Jennings is a cousin to Lorenzo Dow Wakefield. I cannot find the connection.

Lorenzo Dow Wakefield, son of George and Eliza Clark Wakefield, was born July 27, 1833, Brownfield, Oxford County, Maine. He came out to California and died in Stockton, California September 10, 1912 at the age ~79 years old. His wife was Susan M. Stickney, born October 1, 1847, East Brownfield, Maine, daughter of John Stickney and Sarah Thomas, Maine. She is also buried with her husband Lorenzo Dow Wakefield, Stockton, California.

Lula I. Jennings was born back East (according to the family) and was a cousin to Lorenzo Dow Wakefield. She was born ~ 1864 and died January 5, 1887, Stockton, California at the age of 23 years old due to tuberculosis. She is buried along the side of Lorenzo Dow Wakefield and his wife Susan Stickney Wakefield in Stockton, California

Would love to hear from anyone who remotely might have a clue or suggestion how the Wakefields and Jennings are related to each other.

Thank you. Adine from Stockton, California
