Columbus "Lum" Greener, Choctaw County, OK
Posted by: Renea Burkholder (ID *****9076) Date: February 16, 2008 at 18:49:08
  of 14

According to the 1910 census of Choctaw, Nancy Greener the wife of "Lum" has 4 children - Herman, Everett, Buford M., and May A. Herman is age 11/12, Everett 10/11, Buford 7, and May is 4. This family is listed twice, 23 April in Hugo Township and 9 May in Jeter Township. These children are all listed as stepchildren indicating that Nancy and Lum have married ca 1906. Nancy dies in August of this same year. She is buried at Springs Chapel Cemetery with a headstone giving her birthdate as 5 September 1877 and death date as 25 August 1910. The census also indicates that she was born in MO and the father of her children was born in MO. None of these children is old enough to care for himself or his siblings at the time of her death. It is assumed that they continue living with their stepfather Lum Greener, but where? Lum is Coluumbus Greener, son of John Greener and Martha A. Huey. He was born in TN in 1878. Little is known about him as he gets "lost" in the gap between the 1880 and 1900 census along with a lack of records due to his birthplace being a notorious "burn" county. I would appreciate any information you may have on any of these family members. I have not been able to locate this family again after the 1910 census. Thanks for any help!
