Aloha! This was a reply message I also posted to a query dated 1999, thought I should post it here as well. The 1999 query mentions Lucinda's name as Bell.
I have Aaron Dockery married to Lucinda Brewer, a d/o Sivilian & Mary Brewer, my 4th gr.grandparents. A sister to Lucinda is my 3rd gr.grandmother, Hester "Hetty/Netta" Brewer Ferguson. I too found the census  in which is ref., with child L. J. ('Liza Jane) Dockery b: abt. 1861. I also found that a Thomas Dockery was a son of theirs, b: 1863 in Dockery's Gap, WV. This Thomas is enumerated as a nephew in his aunt Hetty's household in the 1880 Granby, Newton Co., MO census. Thomas married Phebe Shipman, d/o Daniel & Elizabeth "Claypipe" (Anderson) Shipman. Their children: Hugh, Mary & Nellie.
Jun 1989 - HUGH DOCKERY; Hugh Dockery, son of Tommy Dockery of Dockery's Gap, W Va., was born 22 Feb 1899, in Granby. His father was the marshall at one time; his mother would get nervous when she heard a gunshot in the streets. Hugh began working for the mines when he was a boy. He worked the Golden Rule, Crabapple, No 4 & the Mascot. You can pull an ore car through a shaft from the Golden Rule to the Mascot. He remembers: lots of businesses, Miners Bank, Citizens Bank, a bakery (Skillecorn family), a printing office, Cal Jefferson's livery stable, Tom Skaggs' store and Hershel Tanner's store, streets crowded with people, Stringtown (on the prairie) filled with tents, the town almost burning down, when the town rejected a cheese factory, Fed. Mining and Smelting Co buying Granby Mining and Smelting Co, the mines closing, miners going to area towns to work in the mines. Hugh and Mae have been married almost 62 years. She lost a leg to cancer about 25 years ago. She made stitches in quilts since her mishap. Granby's mining past doesn't seem so long ago when you visit with Hugh Dockery.

[Update: Hugh died 22 Mar 1992]
