Margaret Ann Loar Allum
Birth: Mar. 18, 1842
Greene County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 19, 1904
Woods County
Oklahoma, USA

Margaret's LOAR family ancestors, descendants and Margaret herself -- are documented in the book THE LOAR GENEALOGY With Cognate Branches, 1774-1947, by Emma Loar Gaddis.

Although we who pursue genealogy strive for accuracy, it is almost impossible to create an error-free genealogy or family history publication. With the advent of the Internet and previously undreamed access to an array of records, some things within the Loar book can be corrected. This includes years of death for Margaret and her husband Andrew Andrew's middle name the gender of one of their children (George Hudson Allum, not Georgia) among other items.

Margaret Ann Loar was born near Jacksonville (known also as Wind Ridge) in Greene County, Pennsylvania, the same county in which her future husband Andrew was born. She was the third of ten children of Jacob Loar, 1817-1888, and first wife, Maria Nelson, 1819-1864. Married in 1861 in Greene County to Andrew Kimmins Allum, Margaret and Andrew lived in Richhill Township where four of their eight children were born 1862 to 1868. The year 1869 brought the family to Iowa where Andrew farmed in Jasper County and four additional children were born 1872 to 1881. Three of eight children did not live to adulthood: Lydia Jane, born 1866 in Greene County, PA, died 1868, buried in Greene County in Fairview Cemetery, Wind Ridge; George Hudson, born 1864 in Greene County, died 1871 in Jasper County, IA, buried in Slagel Cemetery, Buena Vista Township; and John William, born 1881 in Jasper County, IA died 1884 in the same county, also buried in Slagel Cemetery.

Already by 1867 Andrew's elder brother, John Supler Allum, had migrated from southwest Pennsylvania to Jasper County, Iowa, where he and his wife and most members of their family lived the remainder of their lives. Likely, the 1867 migration had encouraged Andrew to follow. For reasons unknown to present-day descendants, Andrew, Margaret and family moved from Iowa to Cass County, Missouri in 1893 where Andrew continued to farm. In 1901, by covered wagon, they moved yet again from Missouri to Woods County, Oklahoma. Margaret died at Alva, Woods County, in 1904 (not 1905), and is buried in Union Center Cemetery. A widower for fourteen years, Andrew died in 1918 (not 1919) and is buried beside wife Margaret. Also in Union Center Cemetery is son, Jonathan Edison Allum, 1868-1955. --DeeAnna
