Ursa/Ersa Tomberlin wife of Harry Tipsword was the daughter of John Tomberlin b 1880 in Illinois to a father born in North Carolina. They are in the 1910 census living in Hutton, ColesCO, IL with four children: Zelma age 10, Ersie age 8, Oral age 4 and Norah age 4/12.
Most probable father is William H. Tomberlin b 1840 in NC to a father born in NC and a mother born in TN. William H Tomberlin married Harriet Enyart on 7 March 1872 in Coles CO, IL . I am sure the link is correct. The problem is that the 1890 federal census was destroyed and so we do not see John Tomberlin in the census with his parents due to the 20 year gap. Harriet was born in July 1855 in IL. I think her parents are Levi Enyart and Susan Taylor married 7 Oct 1846 in Coles CO, IL and one other researcher has that online in her family tree so it is probably correct Susan was the daughter of Michael Taylor and Elizabeth Patterson both of whom died in Coles CO, IL. pamela
