I recently came into possession of a letter from William O. Saum (b. 1867) to his sister Mary A. Saum dated February 23, 1887.William and Mary appear to be the children of John B. Saum (b. 1845) and Annnie M. George (b. 1846) of Franklin County, PA. In the 1880 census, William and Mary are both listed as being 12 years old so they must be twins.Contents of the letter lead me to believe that by the time it was sent, William had moved to Illinois.
These people do not seem to be descendents of Nicholas Saum.Are they descended from Andreas Saum?Can someone provide more information about that line?Is there any relation to Nicholas and his brothers? Please let me know if you are descended from this family.
