    Notes 
    • Death Certificate has Louella Lenora's ("Nora") mother as "Caroline Lucas" (provided at her death by son James M. Flack), yet FamilySearch.org has "Frances Eugenia Mangum" as her mother.

      According to "Chapters, Ann Heard family history" Frances Mangum (Lucas) died in childbirth with Nora. It's likely aunt Caroline Lucas (1853-1929) helped brother John Franklin Lucas (1882-1825) raise "Nora" and 6 other siblings --earning "grandmother" love from JMF. If true, Caroline was JMF's "great aunt".

    Louella Lenora Flack death certificate d. 23 Mar 1975
    The certificate has Caroline Lucas as "Nora's" mother, however, according to Ann Heard's family history, Nora mother died at her birth. Apparently, Aunt Caroline Lucas (sister to father John Franklin Lucas) became the surrogate mother, helping to raise 7 siblings.
    Son James M. Flack provided certificate data, relying on information from Cousin Hattie, noted on a Alta Lodge notepad in JMF's handwriting.

    James M. Flack handwritten notation lists Nora's parents as John Franklin Lucas and Caroline Lucas, according to Hattie Mangum. However, her mother was Frances Eugenia Mangum (1857-1891) who died in Nora's childbirth (according to Ann Heard's family history). Aunt Caroline was the surrogate mother for her brother's 7 children.
