My computer ate all my files a year or so back and I haven't gotten around to poking the information back in - that said, I didn't have much more on that side of the family beyond James Barker Blume and Eulalia Harley. Today, I spent some time trying to work out where I came across Barker as a middle name. Midget's death certificate just lists J.B. Blume.

This all started because Daisy Lee Blume Partridge passed away last weekend. My sister asked if I could connect her to the family. Daisy's parents were Noah Blume and Marion Graddick (or Gradick). I started digging through the internet and found a record of Noah Blume marrying Marion Gradick and Frank Blume marrying Mary Gradick. Mary and Marion are descendants of Mary Leitner and David Gradick. There was nothing further on the Blumes.

There also was no mention of James so the trail went cold. (that is, without serious research) Anyway a little more poking and I came across your post.

I would greatly appreciate any information you may have. I have some old photo's - some are of people from Mom's family that I don't recognize and there is nothing written on them to say who they might be. I will also dig back through my notes and start putting the Plumer/Blume family back together.

I'll talk to my brother Mike and sister Michelle - Michelle should have a better recollection of Mom's stories - she is the oldest.
