John "Jack" and Nora (Cummins) Wildman

From Nora Anderson’s genealogical publication, based on La Verta Thomas’ and Lynn Wildman’s research.
Also includes his obituary.

John "Jack" joined his brother Frank in leaving Canada, visiting Kansas, and relocating in Oklahoma Territory. He and Frank had the businesses in Purcell and Lexington, across the S. Canadian River. Nora Lee Cummins was attending St. Elizabeth's convent in Purcell and would stop by the store on her way home from school, where she met Jack and he fell in love with her. She was only 18, but her parents urged her to marry him, so they were wed in January 1898. Their first child, Vernon, was born in Lexington. When the Rock Island railroad came to Mountain View, he and Frank moved there to put in a cotton gin. A son, Forrest, and daughter, Vera were also born there. Later they moved to Carnegie, first to farm and then into town, where all of the children received a high school education. They then moved to Edmond, where Forrest and his mother attended college. They finally moved to Monahans, TX, where Jack had a warehouse and sold junk.

Jack died in Monahans and Nora Lee in El Paso (where she had been hospitalized with cancer), and both are buried in Monahans.
