I have Lewis (Louis) Grant VanTuyl (b. Nov 1866-8, IN, d. 1940) and Malinda (Melinda) "Lynn" Viola Chumbley (b. 26 June 1871, Polk Co, MO, d. 31 July 1918, MO) married on 28 July 1889 in Lawrence Co, MO.They had the following known children: 1. Harold VanTuyl 2. Ardo Rena VanTuyl 3. Atha VanTuyl 4. Tishomingo VanTuyl (b. 1892)
I have a Chumbley family picture that includes Lewis, Lynn and 3 of the four children, taken around 1897.
The 1880 Census has only one Lewis G. Vantyle (could be a typing error by the transcriber) and he is shown as being 12 years of age and born in Indiana.That fits pretty good.
Anyone have anything to add to this?I have no other information on the VanTuyl line as linked to this family. I am related thru Lynn's father, Samuel Chumbley.
