Possible composer Lula Munny

Munny, Lula may be Lula Jane Money, born July 14, 1885 in Alabama[i] to Neil H. Money and Mary Jane Nobles. She married William Abner Fletcher (1880—1967) circa 1903 and they had four children. They were found in the Henry County 1910 and 1920 censuses, but she died November 25, 1929 in Columbus, Muscogee County, Georgia.  Lula is buried in Pilgrims Rest Freewill Baptist Church Cemetery at Wills Crossroads, Henry County, Alabama. William is buried at the Riverdale Cemetery in Muscogee County, Georgia.[ii]
309       Living Lamb (alto)

[i] Censuses list her place of birth as Alabama, but some genealogists give Edgefield District, South Carolina. The latter seems unlikely, since her father was in Alabama in the 1880 census.
[ii] Despite this being the only plausible candidate I could find, her grandson does not think Lula Jane Money was the same Lula Munny who wrote alto for Living Lamb; personal e-mail correspondence from her grandson, Friday, January 3, 2014
