I am trying to place in their families the spouses of the descendants of Permelia WILLIAMS and Benjamin James Jordan MARSH of South Greenfield, Dade Co, Missouri. Permelia Williams was the daughter of Thomas L. Williams and Franky MURRELL
When Benjamin died in 1915, listed among his heirs are Mrs. Callie Gum of So. Greenfield, Dade Co.In one document she is referred to as Mrs. W. 0. Gum.While I was at the neighboring Co library I looked quickly through the book "Leaves of the Gum Tree", but as it was unindexed I didn't have enough time to go through page by page.
Do any of you recognize Callie & W. 0. Gum??Is there any record of their children?
Caledonia J. Marsh Gum was born 11 DEC 1873, according to pension information. My mother remembers "Aunt Callie" and her family moved to Colorado.Callie's siblings and their spouses all of Dade/Lawrence Co area were --
(1) Wm Michael Marsh, m. Casselia BIRD, d/o Henry P. Bird & Lucinda CHOATE (this is my line);
(2) Presley Patterson Marsh md. Rada/Rhoda STAPP/STEPP, d/o Isaac Burton Stapp and Cordelia MERRICK;
(3) Anne Mary Belle Marsh married William L. NEWKIRK, son of Abraham Taylor Newkirk and Elizabeth RUDDICK*;
(4)John T. Marsh married Mary BRYANT, d/o ??).
Thanks in advance for information on Callie's Gum in-laws' family.
