Notes

  • Family sources report that J D Tugman had a wife named Flo.  Thiswould match records for Addie Flora Davis Maxwell, who was the thirdwife of J D Tugman.  Her death record reports her full name as AddieFlora Tugsan, with maiden name Davis.

    Census records report her under the name Flora with her parents inArkansas.  The 1920 census unaccountably has her name as Flora M.Other ccensuse report her simply as Flora.  Later records have herfull name as Addie Flora.

    In 1930, Flora's brother Leonard H is enumerated as Homer.  Note alsothe change in her mother's name from Mary J to what appears to beMima.

    With the surname of Maxwell from later records in California, I foundFlora in the 1940 census, with her husband Jeff Maxwell and twochildren across the border in LeFlore County, Oklahoma.

    Later records document her presence in Kern County, California, whereshe later married her second husband, J D (Jack) Tugman.

    A record in the Bakersfield city directory appears to report her underthe name Mrs Flora Davis Maxwell.  There is no information given inthe listing indicating she is the widow of a Maxwell (a commondesignation in these directories), so perhaps they were divorced.  Ihave found no divorce record in California or Nevada.  If the divorceoccurred in Oklahoma, no record of it will be found online.  In 1960the two boys reported in the 1940 census would be about 20 and 24years old.

    Residence here is reported only as Edison.  This is a town nearBakersfield.  There are several entries for people named Maxwell.Nearby is a Clarence A Maxwell with his wife Opal.  This is the nameof on of Jeff's brothers, so this is likelly the right Clarence AMaxwell.  There is a James D Mixwell who could be Flora's son James.Insufficent details are included in these directories to determine theexact relationship of eveyone with the same last name.

    "Edison (formerly Wade) is an unincorporated community in Kern County,California. It is located 7.5 miles (12 km) east-southeast ofBakersfield, at an elevation of 568 feet (173 m)."

    I found Jeff Maxwell's death record in Kern County, California,indicating they were in California together.  His death was before thereported date of Flora's marriage to J D Tugman in 1966.  But I foundno entry for a Jeff Maxwell in the Bakersfield city directory for 1960where we found the apparent record of Flora.
