    Lucy Shepard Freeland was born in 1890 in New Jersey. In 1915, at the age of twenty five, she came to Carmel to open a boarding house with her sister. There she met and became friends with Jaime de Angulo and his first wife Cary [Flint] de Angulo. Eight years later she married de Angulo and produced two childen by him. The first child Alvar, born in 1924, was killed in a car accident in 1933. The second child Guiomar, was born in 1927. In 1942, Lucy divorced de Angulo. She died in 1977 in Berkeley in the house Jaime de Angulo built for her.

However she published under L.S. Freeland with her husband Jaime de Angulo and alternately used Lucy de Angulo, Nancy de Angulo, L. F. de Angulo, and L. S. de Angulo as her name.
