I am looking for Oliver Newsum. He is listed as living in Denver, Colo. in the obituary of his father, Amos Newsum (d. July 21, 1901) in a newspaper article in Richland County, IL. Oliver had the following siblings, Mrs. Clara Nelson, James Newsum, and Harry Newsum. Please contact me if you have any information and we can share the information I have also.
Here's an update, according to the 1920 Census Victor, Teller County, Colorado, there is a Oliver Newsum listed as being 31 years of age born in March of 1869 Illinois, married for eight (8) years, a saloonkeeper with 10 months not employed, renting his house at 106 East Spicer Ave. with parents born in Illinois and married to Josie. Josie was born April 1871 having one child born and one child surviving, born in Illinois with her father born in Pennsylvania and mother born in Ohio. Their child was Bernice H. She was born in August 1893 in Illinois and was attending school for 9 months.
If you have any information on this family, please contact me.
