    • Marriage listing to Rufus Bridges in 1884 is last record I have found. Rufus Bridges is recorded in Census of 1900 living with DeLavantia's son, Raliegh (Ralph). Marital status is Married. Rufus is recorded in 1910 census as widowed. My guess is, she had passed before 1900. Allied Famines date of death seems unlikely. Ms. Warren would have been 100 years old.
    Notes 
    • Letter written by Grant Lupfer.

      April 10

      It took my father six months in 1853 to make only a part of that trip - and to write a little history. My Father had Jane-10; Lewis-5; James-3; George-1; when they crossed the plains. My mother's family: Father and Mother-50 and 49; Oscar Warren -22; Lansing-20; De Lavantia Elizabeth-18-my Mother; James- 14; William-13. My father got thru well - but my mother's folks when they arrived at the Fort Hall location in Idaho near Boise were so badly off that they took the rear wheels of their wagon and made a cart of it and used the best yoke of oxen from there to the Portland area and the two remaining oxen to be killed for food. And all the children walked barefoot from there to the end of the trip and only carried what had to be for absolute needs. My mother had some sheets that she had woven and carried them until she had to throw them by the wayside - she was so little - never weighed more than 108 or 110.

      In later years my father's wife died and my mother had married and had Raleigh, David and Vesta Anne and became a widow. Grandmother Warren kept house for my father a while, then my mother moved in with her three children and they were married. And when I look back on that hardship, I wonder how they stood it. And my mother had the most wonderful discipline. One of our real sins was to snuff our nose instead of using our hankies. At the table once when we were all seated - help and all - about fourteen, help and all, I snuffed my nose (I was probably six) - I heard my mother's foot tap on the floor. I looked and caught her eye. A side-wise nod of the head that meant leave the table - and I quietly left until the meal was over and then I finished my meal but no one except myself and mother knew what had happened. And there were very few "don't's" in my childhood. I was allowed a lot of leeway. One day while on the old ranch, a man passing by while I was out in front, stopped to pass the time of day and asked who lived there, etc. And asked me it I was a good boy. I told him I "minded my mother". He said, "Well, you are a pretty good boy if you mind your mother."

      My early childhood was a very happy one - we were never "hard up" - good horses, cattle, sheep, wagons, etc., well-kept fences, barns, harness, etc.
