I am Gary LaRue Otten born 5-31-1942 the third child of LaRue Gerd Otten & Velma Lee Crum Otten. I was born at home on farm east of Modesto, Il. Siblings are Donna Eugenia Otten Cook wife of the late Rev. Jesse Cook, Donald Eugene (Bud) Otten husband to Joan Ellis, both deceased, and David Lee Otten, deceased. Grandparents are Otto J. Otten & Erma Estelle Hawkins, Ralph Lee Crum & Effie Sims. I have been into genealogy for about 35 years and have over 46100 names in database that are relatives.
here is what she says I have nothing for a John or John W. Crum, however, we do have information for a Wesley Crum (no dates listed in our records and this is one that we have been trying to figure out...
I believe there is a very high chance that the graves of Wesley & Sadie Crum are unmarked. There is a map listed below. To be more helpful (in case the entire lot is unmarked):
1st survey, Lot 18 (to the east of the Crum lot) is McClure surname and lot 19 is Bushart.)
1st survey, Lots 48 & 49 (directly south of the Crum lot) is surnames: Norris & Atterberry
2nd survey, Lots 1 and 2 of the (directly west of Crum lot) is surnames: Logan & Zook
