- Luvenia and her husband moved to Fort Worth, Texas and opened a grocery store. In early 1906 they sent for Ellen's brother Sam Colyer to come to Ft. Worth to work with them at the store. The Wilder's sold the store to Sam Colyer and moved on to California. A week after that their son Raymond died in Kentucky.
- June Avera thinks that it may have been Luvina who married and moved to California. Never much contact with family. Believes that Luvina had daughter that married mexican who was son of vice president of Mexico. Mentioned that Dean Hunter , research of colyer line, went to Mexico and met her at large house and interviewed her.
