MOTHER AMANDA BROWN BORN 1857 GEORGIA.
I AM PUTTING THIS INFO HERE TO TRY AND CLEAR UP THE PARENTS OF MY FATHER LAWRENCE CLIFTON CRUMP B, 1883 GA. HIS SISTERS IDA L CRUMP B. 1877, AND MAUDE MAE CRUMP B 1882.
First my mother was lawrences 3rd wife. he was 30 years older than she was. They married in 1932 in dumas texas. I was the only child from this marrage born 12 years later in 1944, one day before his 61st birthday.
The story i grew up with is there mother amanda brown died when they were young. There father john thomas took the kids to live with there grand father john wesley crump. ( i recentley have oral info that amanda went with john to louisana and died there and burried in the tulip cemetery. i am not sure of this info yet. This maybe a mistake and be lawrences wifes grand parents. ).
I have a letter from a school in south carolina stating that lawrence clifton crump entered this school in feb. 1898 at age 14 by his parrent j w crump. ( john wesley )this fits the story as being grand father and guardian.
I think the kids were passed around and that is why they show up as elijah and harriets kids.
Second. elijah died in georgia. ida, maude and lawrences father is burried by ida and her husband willey f. hill in the pourch cemetery in beckham co. oklahoma. so elijah cannot be there father.
In the 1880 census elijah has a daughter ida l. b 1875. she married james looney. I have found them in each census. I have found willey f hill and ida b 1877 in each census, this shows two different idas. in the 1880 census christopher and amanda brown have a daughter ida l. born 1876-7 georgia,
Third. john thomas is living with brothers george center crump and general reeves crump in webster louisana in the 1910 census. it shows john born 1857 ga. The info at the elk city library says john thomas b 1857 ga. son of john wesley and addison. died aug. 3 1920.
FOURTH AND A MISTERY. JOHN WESLEY HAS A SON JOHN THOMAS B 1864 NOT 1857. IF INFO IS CORRECT THIS JOHN MARRIED A ANNA MANYARD, MOVED TO OCONEE SOUTH CAROLIMA AND DIED IN 1930.
JOHN THOMAS HAS A BROTHER CHRISTOPHER B 1857 WHO MARRIED AMANDA BROWN.
THIS BIRTH YEAR FITS AND THE MOTHER AMANDA BROWN FITS.
MY HALF SIBS NEW THERE GRAND FATHER AS JOHN THOMAS AND AMANDA BROWN.
THE ONLY THING THAT SEEMS TO FIT IS CHRISTOPHER IS USING HIS BROTHERS NAME BUT WHY.
I WAS TOLD HE WENT BY KITT MORE THAN ANY OTHER NAME. AGAIN WHY, DID THE NAME SIMPLEY GET MIXED UP SOME WAY OR COULD HE BE HIDING IN A WAY??
FIFTH richard lane a brother of john thomas went to dumas texas and burried in amarillo texas. he was the only uncle i ever met. His obit says son of john wesley and addison.
Sixth. Amanda had a brother john thomas (tom) b. ga. and went to dumas texas. idas daughter in law still living at 98 knew a lot of these brown thru ida. tom had a daughter katie who married a hugh helm. A lot of browns and katie are in the dumas cemetery, dumas texas.
I know this is confusing but the whole story is hard to put in short form.
My dads second wife was nora l wilson, but i am not positive of her name.
