Hello, I am the granddaughter of Brittie Edwin (or Edward) Sumpter, b. 3/25/01 in Fordland, MO. d. 11/66 in Topeka, Ks., buried in Parsons, Ks.He married Ethel Mae McGaughey on 12/21/22 in Columbus, Ks.Ethel Mae was born 7/13/02 in Bruce, KS and d. 3/26/42 in Parsons, Ks.
Their children were: Earl William b. 4/10/23 in Tulsa, OK, d. 8/27/74 in K.C., MO Martha Rena Belle, b. 6/4/25 in Cherokee, KS Dora Catherine b. 2/12/31 in Tulsa, OK Brittie Jr. b. 1929, Parsons, deceased Jewel Elizabeth b. 1923, Tulsa, OK d. 1927, Tulsa, OK Fred Calvin, b. 1933 Robert Murle, b. 1937 Nernice Jeannette b.1935 Ernest Theodore, b. 3/9/29, d. 10/17/74 Ryamond Lee, b. 4/21/41 d. 8/5/67 Barbara Jean, b/ 3/13/42 (my mother)
Brittie's father was William Clifton Sumpter, b. 10/1859 in Webster Co., MO Rumor has it he died in 1901 in Fordland, MO around the same time my grandfather was born.Another rumor states my greatgrandparents divorced and he left the area.I have not been able to confirm his death or his whereabouts after 1901 and I've been looking for over 10 years!
William Clifton married Hannah Symantha Burris, b. 1870 in Sturdson, IL in Webster Co., MO in 1887
My aunt told me she believed William's father was a Jesse or Jessie P. (not sure about the P.) Sumpter.
If anyone has any information regarding this line, could you please, please contact me.As I've said, I've been trying to trace this line for over 10 years, but have not been able to get very far.I do know that William and Hannah were both supposedly from IL.
