Portrait of my great-grandmother, Eliza A. "Lida" (Smallwood) Parkhurst
Eliza went by the name of Lida, though various print sources had it as "Lida" or "Lydia".   The 1870 census of DeWitt Co. had her name as "Leidie", so this was apparently a nickname she was given by her parents as a child.  Her grave marker, in fact, says "Lida A. Parkhurst."

Lida was affectionately known as "Nannie" to her family.

For some reason, Lida put down that she was only 22 in her marriage record, though she was almost 29.

Lida was the president of the Past Presidents Club of Sorosis, OK.

"As D. L. Parkhurst was driving home from Decatur Saturday with his family and niece, Maud Spainhour, the horse became frightened and kicked and started to run.  Miss Spainhour was kicked above the knee and D. L. was thrown out under the buggy.  The horse turned twice, breaking the shafts, one wheel, and other parts, severely injuring Mr. Parkhurst's knee.  Neither Mrs. Parkhurst or the baby were at all hurt.  The horse then broke loose and ran down the road, but was caught near Richard Gulick's."
