I'm also researching information on Charles & Elise Pegum (pegump?). I come through Edith's line (with an Evert or Ernst Pagel). I don't have anything to offer at this point, but I'd love to be kept in the loop of your research. If it helps, I live near Amana, Iowa where Ernst and Eda Pagel were married. I believe Charles immigrated to the Amana Colonies in Iowa. Not sure what records they have, but I can make a trip and let you know what I find out.
