I am curious. I have Baucum's in my family tree and I am having a hard time finding them before 1897.I have a picture and I only know one of the people in the picture. Here is what I have, Maybe you can help.
Rosa Ella/Alley Baucum b 3 Nov 1877 Illinois d 31 Oct 1949 Indianapolis, Marion Co, Indiana.She married Thomas Marion Skiles 20 Jan 1897 Owen Co, Kentucky. Believe her parents to be a George Baucum and Nettie My grandmother didn't have any other information besides names of her parents.I don't know if Nettie is a nickname or her real name. Sorry I don't have more info on them. Believe she had a sister or cousin named Nora Baucum who married Thomas' brother Henry Skiles. On Rosa's marriage record there is a Jho Baucum as a witness.On her death record there is a Geo Baucum listed as her father but her mother is not listed. My memory fails me now but I think that I also remember a Charles Baucum either living near them or with them somewhere but unable to find where I made a note of that. I have much information on the descendants but not ancestors.Any help is appreciated.I can provide copies of the marriage and death records and of course the picture if need be or if you just want to see them.
