Re: Robert Swan Lummus from Union Co., Miss.
Sharia. Here's what I know from my family:
My mother is Frances Alta Lummus Faries,dob
9/16/1921, Pontotoc, MS. She is still living.
Her father, George Franklin Lummus, my grandfather was born 9/1/1891 in Blue Spring,MS died in Orange,Tx. 1970. His father, my greatgrandfather is Robert Swan Lummus born 8/1853 died 5/22/1947 and is buried in Fairfield Cemetery Union Co, MS with his sister Elizabeth Lummus Carr.My Robert Swan married S.F.Bell Hardy 5/23/1882 and Sarah died in 1887 and is buried in New Hope Cemetery, Union Co., MS. We think that Robert Swan also married T. E. Snipes who already had a daughter Florence Snipes Darling that my grandfather called sister.My grandfather gave me a picture of his mother that he called Docie Brown.I have never found a record of her, I only have a picture.The siblings I know of of my Robert Swan are: Jackson (Jack) Lummus 1883
James Pleasant Louis Lummus 8/1884,Essie Lummus 9/1888, Silas Lummus 12/1889,George Franklin Lummus 9/1/1891,Mamie Lummus 6/1894. I know that Silas never married and died in camp inWorl War I. Robert Swan had sister Elizabeth who married Wash Carr and Rebecca (my mother called Aunt Becky) who was deaf and dumb. My mother, her mother Eula Emogene Lummus and father George and her siblings lived with Robert for a while in Ms.I do have a picture of him that I can send to you.I hope this helps. Sharon
