As a matter of interest, see Daniel Boone relationship of Perthena - James' mother - as given in The Bigelow Family Genealogy, Vol.1.  Also, the father of Malinda (Callaway) Bigelow (wife of Rufus' brother), is believed to be Flanders Callaway, son of col. Richard Callaway who served in the Revolution with Lieut. Daniel Boone.  Flanders Callaway married Jemima Boone, Daniel Boone's daughter.  A check with the Boone Family Association of California could verify this or you could check into the book:  "Descendants of the Boone and Bigelow Families, by Lillian Hayes Oliver.

The above 1910 census notes that both Emma & Lucas were married twice, there are two children:

Grace Bennett     Daughter     age 18 b. in Kansas
Lucille Frindley  Step-Daught  age 20 b. in Missouri


The 1900 census shows that Lucas is married to Alice _________   age 25 b. on Oct 1874 in Nebraska also children:

Grace Bennett     Daughter     age 8  b. in Kansas
Blanch Bennett    Daughter     age 1  b. in Kansas

It would appear that Emma was first married to a _________ Frindley but there is no record to support that yet.  The 1900 census for Emma and/or Lucile Frindley seems to be very difficult to find.
