Lucy Emma Cecelia (Kincaid) Ledford's History

Uncover new discoveries and connections today by sharing about people & moments from yesterday.
  • Introduction

    Lu's mother was Domitilla Aguilar Kincaid and she was the next-to-youngest of 5 children by her and Elam Orson (E.O.) Kincaid, some 30 years her senior. While he was a Prison Guard at San Quentin, Lucy was born there at the Village for employee families. Domitilla was not with E.O. when she died - he was in Lathrop, CA (a retired soldier) on a farm he owned and ran and she was in Los Angeles with the 6 kids. She died suddenly while Lu was still a toddler, succumbing to galloping tuberculosis. E.O. could not get to the kids for some reason, so their maternal grandparents who are honored Spanish pioneers who helped settle the State of California in Descanso (San Diego area) - also known as Californios - came by wagon taking several days and picked up the kids and brought them to their ranch to raise them. The youngest, an infant, was adopted out almost immediately. E.O. had lived with them in Descanso, CA previously and was the Deputy Sherrif. He is buried in Bakersfield ,CA. Domitilla, Lu's mother, is buried in the family cemetery called "Eliis Family Ranch" in Descanso - nationally registered as a historic place - along with Lu's Mother - Domitilla, her brother Eddie Kincaid, and grandparents, Gavino and Antonia Aguilar and several other relatives including Uncle Ellis and Aunt Ysdiora Aguilar Ellis, who named "Descanso"! Lu married Loren Edgar Ledford in Los Angeles, CA at a young age. After she had two children (Ray and Lorene) their marriage would not last. It was a very difficult and drawn out process immediately following their divorce, and Lu's brother-in-law Dallas Ledford helped and folded her two precious children in with his large herd on a ranch in rural Imperial County, CA. The children were very happy there, and their parents visited them and were photographed there together in regular large family gatherings. Lu later moved to Bakersfield, CA and remarried a Mr. Young and helped raise his children. This marriage also would not last and Lu lived alone the last days of her life. She was visited by her daughter, Lorene, now and again, including the day she died of pneumonia.

  • Ethnicity & Family History

    Lu's mother was a Californio, born on a cattle ranch in East San Diego County to a Spanish mother and father who were pioneers of California. Lu's father was of Irish descent, and born in a covered wagon in Keokuk Iowa, as the family moved west.
  • Nationality & Locations

    Lu's mother was Latina (Aguilar) and a Californio, and her father a Career Soldier of Scottish descent (Kincaid). Her father was originally from PA and mustered there for the Civil War. He later served with the National Guard in the immediate aftermath of the Great Quake of 1906, during Marshall Law. His family had several brothers who were all soldiers, as well as his father (Lu's grandfather) Almerion Kincaid. This family is honored in public places in Bakersfield, CA. Lu's first husband was a businessman in Los Angeles, where they originally settled and had children. She did not maintain a steady relationship with her children, Lorene and Ray, after her divorce. Her sisters, however, did, and I am sure she was very grateful because she loved them very much. Lu's second husband was as also a businessman, in Bakersfield, CA, where she last lived until her death.
