    By 1920, Lucy has been married and divorced and has moved to theNorthwest.  Note that according to ages in the previous censuses andthis 1920 census, Lucy has aged only 7 years since 1910.  The 1900 and1910 ages are consistent with her known birth date from familysources, 16 Aug 1893.

    In the 1920 census, Lucy is divorced from George Tugman, and is livingwith her two sons in Rock Lake Precinct, Platte County, Wyoming.  Sheand George married some time about 1814, then moved to Platte County,Wyoming, before the birth of J D, who was 8 months old in January1920.  But in the census, they are reported as Divorced.  George andLucy are living in different locations in the same county.  Thechildren are with Lucy.  It would seem likely they moved then divorcedquickly after, perhaps over the stress of the move and relocation?

    Details on the divorce are missing from family tradition, and I havefound no public documentation.  Family tradition reports that Georgegot the divorce from Lucy on the grounds of mental cruelty he hadexperienced.  (Information from Loretta Gregory Gay, niece of Lucy andGeorge.)  Beyond this no details are known.

    Lucy Tugmon Housekeeper F W 23 Divorced TN TN TN
    David M Tugmon M W 5 OK OK TN
    J D Tugmon M W 8mos WY OK TN

    In this census the family name is written Tugmon, as is George'srecord.  It is spelled Tugman on census entries for the previousTugman generations and for George and Lucy's boys in later life.  ATugmon genealogy also spells the name consistently as Tugmon(referenced in some of the footnotes and Notes on some Tugmanindividuals.)

    In this census the birthplace of both Lucy's parents is reported asTennessee, which is correct from other records and family sources.However, in 1930, when she is back in Oklahoma, and married toLawrence Carter, her father is reported as born in Georgia.  I cannotthink of any explanation for that.

    Her first child with Lawrence, Billie Joe, is 6 years old in the 1930census, so I estimate they were married in about 1922 for Billie to beborn before April 1923 (to be 6 years old in the April census 1930).Billy Joe's actual birth date is 24 January 1924.
