Notes

  • According to the family, J D was always called by only his initials.The family sources say Jack was not a real name, and they do not knowwhy he was called Jack.  But every public record or Directory listingreports him as Jack D Tugman.

    Only two early exceptions to this occur, when He is listed as JD inthe 1920 and 1930 censuses.  All other records have him as Jack D,including his California death record and the marriage records.  Ihave not seen his birth certificate.

    The family name is spelled Tugman in all sources except the 1920census, where it is spelled Tugman.  J D is in his mother's householdwhere she is working as a divorced mother in Platte County, Wyoming.

    By 1930 the family is back in Oklahoma, and J D's mother has remarriedto Lawrence Carter.

    In 1940, Jack is in the Army, stationed at Ft Sill, near Lawton, inComanche County, a couple of counties south of Lindsay, where hisfather was living in 1930.

    Jack married Mary Bartley Powell about 1948.  Their son Donald Ray wasborn in July 1949 in Wichita County, Texas, probably when Jack wasassigned to the Army base in Wichita Falls.

    A flight manifest tells us that Jack traveled from Honolulu to LosAngeles in December 1951.

    JD and Mary moved to Bakersfield, California, for a while.  Thefollowing listing in Bakersfield, California, is likely for our J D(Jack) Tugman, though the middle initial in A instead of D.  Sincethey are in the 1952 directory, along with his father, and theoccupation as driver matches, this is probably the same couple.  Note,however, that their son Don Ray, born in 1949, is missing from bothlistings.  In checking other listings on the pages, it appears thatthis directory does not list minor children.

    No other Tugman or Tugmon is listed in Bakersfield in 1951.  Thisspelling of the family name seems to confirm a conclusion  of familyresearcher Loretta Gregory Gay that the spelling of Tugman wasintroduced by George's wife and J D's mother Lucy Gregory Tugman,while his father followed the earlier original dominant spelling ofthe family name as Tugmon.  There are other branches of the famliythat also spell the name as Tugman, including another J D Tugman ofBend, Oregon..

    In the 1952 city directory we find them listed under the originalspelling of the name Tugmon, and with the correct initial D. Hisfather George Edward is also in the directory as G E Tugmon.  J D andMary moved to Texas in about 1953, but later J D was back in KernCounty where he lived the rest of his life.

    Jack and Mary are reported in the Amarillo, Texas, city directory in1954 and 1955.

    By 1957 they are in Lubbock, where they are also listed in 1958.

    In have not determined exactly when J D went back to California, butit was before 1960, when he is listed in the city directory forBakersfield.  He was there in early 1962, when he married Bessie IreneGann.  It is not clear if Mary died or they divorced.  I have notfound a divorce or death record in either Texas or California.

    Jack is the only Tugman or Tugmon listed in Bakersfield in 1960.  Notethat no wife's name is given here.  In this same directory, J D'sthird wife appears as Flora Davis Maxwell, with no husband, but nodesignation of her as a widow, which we would expect.  This mayindicate they were divorced.  Jeff Maxwell did not die until 1965, theyear before Addie Flora (Flo) married J D.  No entry appears for herfirst husband Jeff Maxwell, but Jeff's brother Clarence A Maxwell isin the directory.

    Two listings are found for the marriage of J D to Irene Devault,giving both her maiden name and her first married name of  Gann.

    A very interesting record turned up, with Jack Tugman at the 1315Washington Ave address above.  Directories continue to report thisJack Tugman at the same address in years after J D's date of death in1991.  Our J D's thrid wife Flora also died before this date, on 29June 1984,

    Two marriage records also occur for J D's third marriage, to Addie FMaxwell/Davis.  Addie's death record informs us that Davis was hermaiden name.  We also see her middle name, reported as the initial Felsewhere, was Flora, the name she is commonly known by, or itsnickname Flo, reported by Loretta Gregory Gay from personal knowledge.
