I am wondering if anyone can help me. My mother was born Beth Lydia McCumsey on 5/3/22 in Hanford,Ca. Her mother was Charlotte Walker born 7/17/01 in Indiana. She married a McCumsey. She had my mother and another daughter named Zelma born 8/23. My mother got polio when she was a year old. It seems the stess of it all scared her father away, he left them and was never heard of again. I would like to know anything I can about him and where he came from. He would have been born in the late 1800's. Once he left my grandmother she never heard from his family again. My mother will be 80 this year and thank god she is very mentally alert. She has some of the effects of the post polio syndrome but she does not walk with a walker or use a wheelchair. My grandmother died in June of 2000. If any of this sounds familiar please contact me. I would like to know where the McCumsey family come from. I have been researching my fathers side of the family which was the McNeese's from Ireland. Are the McCumsey's from Ireland or Scotland?
