Classification: Query Surnames: Lum Linda K. Gill, We must be relatives as my grandfather was Jesse Amos and grandmother was Sarah Catherine Smith. Where do you live? I am in Ponca City, OK. Looking forward to hearing back from you. Sammie Farris Coats
Pauline Jane Wise and Erastus Lum are my great, great great grandparents. I have visited their graves (they are buried next to one another) in Mt. View, OK and took pics at the cemetary. Paulina Jane Wise was born Feb 21, 1855 at Jasper Co, Missouri and died in 1939. I will need to check my records to see if I have any info on her parents.

Classification: Query Surnames: I have a William Lum b.1796-1805 married to Sarah Ann Nelson. They had a son Erastus Hugh Lum. My 4th great grandfather was John Lum ,3rd great grandfather Samuel mathias Lum,2nd grandfather John Livingston Lum, Grandfather Samuel Deboriun Lum. William Lum is from Jesse Daniel Lum. I have a William Douglas Lum from around Beaumont, Tx. I'm almost sure this is of the same bunch. My John came through Miss. to Natches and lived around Robeline ,La . They had a Bell Factory .

Erastus Hugh, known as "Rack" was my great-grandfather born 1849 in St. Landry Parish, LA. I thought I had located the right William Lum but his date of birth is listed as 1805 so I am on the lookout again. What I don't understand is that Pauline Wise Lum, wife of Rack seems to be a dead end. When my grandmother, Sarah Catherine Smith Lum, died from what they think was TB, Mom and her three sisters and one brother were farmed out to whomever would take them. She was always told that her grandmother was full-blood Cherokee but we could never find her on the Indian rolls.My mother was never able to tell me how her grandfather acquired the nickname "Rack". Well, Ed, you have a whole new bunch of relatives. I live in Ponca City, OK and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to hearing from you.
My mother was Beulah Mildred Lum Farris, and my grandparents were Jesse Amos Lum and Sara Catherine Smith We are related. Where do you live? I am in Ponca City, OK. Sammie: My husband's grandparents were George and Ada "Lizzie" (Greenhaw) Lum; Erastus (Rack or Hugh) was the son of William and Sarah (Nelson) Lum. I have not found the origin of the name "Rack" either, but Hugh was his middle name and the names of Sarah's brother and father.(I have copies of the successions for Erastus' father and grandfather from the St Landry Parish courthouse.)
We live in Sulphur, LA and I work at the S W LA Genealogical and Historical Library. It amazes me how much is available about the Lum family! However, I have not found anything on Pauline Wise's family either except that she was born in Missouri. I hope to visit the courthouse in Carthage on the next trip we make to MO.
By the way, I am a native of OK and lived in Ponca City as a child!!! Linda K Gill
You know in Ft. Gibson Ms. there is a BED & Breakfast owned and operated by the Lum Family. Ed Lum email@example.com
I know we are related to the Mississippi bunch but just have to figure out the connection.
forget to give you my email address it is firstname.lastname@example.org. Isn't it a small world that we are related and both have Ponca City ties? What is your husband's name? I am also learning a lot from Ed Lum in Las Vegas. He said he used to correspond with you but has lost touch. I found out that Great-grandpa Erastus Hugh went by "Rack" as his dad had the same name and was known as "Buck". We have so few relatives any more that it is great to connect with new family. What is also fascinating to me is there is a Cleo Greenhaw that also lives here and we have been trying to work out if we are related or not. He gave me his info several years ago and I can't find it. I will look forward to hearing from you again. I will have many questions. I am new to this ancestor stuff. I just wish I could solve the mystery regarding my great-grandmother. There just isn't any info about her. Even my grandmother, Sarah Catherine, has her birth and death listed as "private". What does that mean? I hope "Ike" isn't damaging you in Sulfur. I will have to look on the map to see where you are in LA. Well, good "chatting" with you. Stay safe. Sincerely, Sammie Coats Erastus Hugh Lum was born ca 1847 in St Landry Parish, LA to William and Sarah (Nelson) Lum. He married Pauline Wise October 25, 1871 in Red River Co, TX. He died September 10, 1918 in Mountain View, OK.
Erastus Lum and Pauline Wise Does anyone know the names of Pauline Wise's parents, or when and where she died?
