Ann - Thank you for the information on Ida Gonzallus. I have found info that the spelling maybe Gunsolus (from the LDS website)and have located a Peter E. Gunsolus b. 1846 in Missouri m. Oct. 24, 1866 in Jack County Texas to Lockney Jane Van Hooser...child six of ten is Ida Gunsolus b. 1878 in Jack County...I believe this is Henry Lee Hellums wife.The spelling of this name is Dutch, rather than the Spanish heritage I originally thought. If this is true I have a lot of information on Ida. Also, I have talked with Yvonne Bowman who has given me information on Samuel Suit father of our Elizabeth Suit...other info on other Hellums also.
My information on Henry Lee Hellums is from a family bible that simply lists the father of Robert E. Lee Hellums as Henry Hellums born Little Rock Arkansas...I assume this is oral folklore and there is no documentation to confirm this.
Please let me hear from you on your info on Ida.Thanks, Donn
