John D. Mecum married Sarah Ann sometime after 1880 I believe.Her maiden name was Pope, but she had probably married before her marriage to John Mecum.She was born about 1848 in NY.
In the 1870 census, he is listed as married to a Susan and is living in Mon??? township.In the 1880 census he is in Newville Township with his children and no wife.He was born in PA about 1833.
They may have been in Indian Territory in 1900.There is a couple John D. Mecum and Sarah Mecum of the right places and dates of birth in the 1900 census for the Indian Territory.
Sarah Mecum was living with her step-daughter Lucetta Mecum Ham in Tehama Co. in the 1910 census.In her sister Louisa Pope Polley's obit in 1911 she is listed as a surviving sister living in Oakland.
If anyone can do a lookup for me or point me to a source I would appreciate it!
