At one time, they lived in the “Baker” home in Champagnolle, Arkansas. Her husband Lt. Lamkin was of the Co. E., 3rd Arkansas Infantry during the Civil War. Together they had two sons—one died in infancy, the other was named Henry. Albina became infected with Tuberculosis and her husband took her to Bryan, Texas, hoping for a cure.
