You didn't give any of the ages on those you found on census records, so I went looking. Who is the William Allen listed as a boarder in Lucy's household in 1900? He's old enough to be her father, maybe????

Could these be Lucy's parents? 1880 census Wise Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

William ALLEN Self M Male W 56 TN Farming TN TN
Mary Ann ALLEN Wife M Female W 50 TN Keeping House TN TN

If this is the right family, then is this them on the 1860 census Cocke Co, TN?

Allen, William, 34, b TN
" Mary A., 34, b TN
" Lucinda, 13, b TN ************
" Andrew J., 10, b TN

Happy Hunting (^_^)
