Re: D.D. Jumper/MS/TX
My great grand-father was D.D., Douglas D. or Dug Jumper.According to the 1920 census, he was born in Mississippi and was born in 1878.At the time of the 1920 census the family was living in Hugo, Choctaw County, Oklahoma.He was married to Fannie Esther Atkinson October 20, 1896 in Lamar County, Texas.There children were Mayme Jumper, Harvey Jumper, Carl Jumper, Howard Jumper, and Francis Arlen Jumper.Fannie Esther Atkinson Jumper was born in Tennessee.The 1910 census shows D.D. Jumper living in Quinlan, Hunt County, Texas and the 1900 census shows Dug Jumper living in Fannin County, Texas with an 8 month old child named Sam who must have died very young because he does not appear on the later census noted above.D.D. Jumper died April 22, 1966 in Tyler Texas.The 1880 census shows a Dug Jumper in Tippah County, Mississippi as the 2 year old son of a Samuel and Lucenia Jumper.Are you and Irelated? And is my D.D. Jumper the same as the Dug Jumper shown in the 1880 census? Can you shed any light on this?Are there any published Jumper family histories?Any family history you can share with me would be greatly appreciated.My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.orgMy mailing address is P.O.
