I realize that this was posted quite a while ago, but I wanted to reply anyway. The name "Bruman" is actually a misspelling of Marlena's first husband's name--BRONAUGH. Marlena/Morlena--maiden name ROBINSON--(she states in her Civil War widow's pension application--based on her second husband's war service--that her name was actually "Morlena")first married Ford Tinsley BRONAUGH, supposedly 4 July 1855 at Laclede Co, MO (no record of this marriage has yet been found). Ford Tinsley BRONAUGH's name is misspelled on the 1860 census as something that looks like "Tinsley BRUMAN" and when Marlena/Morlena married Elisha EMMERSON (25 July 1865 Laclede Co, MO), her name looks like "BRUMAN." Ford Tinsley BRONAUGH left Marlena/Morlena and their three children: Mary Ellen BRONAUGH, Cynthia Elizabeth BRONAUGH, and Thomas BRONAUGH, at her parent's house in Laclede Co, MO in the spring of 1861 and said that he was going to Pike's Peak to mine for gold. He was never seen again. Elisha EMMERSON's pension file tells the whole story and it's fascinating. Please see the story on my Web site:
