Classification: Query
Surnames: Tatum. Dunn, Proctor/Procter, Gibbs, Graham, Taylor
In doing research on Eli W Tatum, who married Hester R Proctor/Procter {an allied family of mine}, I found an A N Tatum on the 1900 Logan co KY census. The surname was spelled Latum, with a correction of Tatum posted. This A N Tatum was listed as a brother of Eli's. A N's birth date is Apr 1829, he is 71, a widower, b KY. At first I thought it was Alonzo. But since Alonzo died in 1868, it couldn't be him. A N Tatum is Absalom Newlin Tatum, a son of Seth Tatum & Jane Gibbs. Absalom Tatum married Martha Dunn on 2 Mar 1851 Robertson co TN. This marriage record is on Ancestry under TN State Marriages, 1780-2002. Martha Dunn, we believe was the daughter of Gray Bynum Dunn & Lucy Tatum Graham of Logan co KY. //// Absalom Tatum, listed as A N Tatum & family are on the 1860 Logan co KY census; All born KY: A N age 30; Martha age 26; Vandike age 7; Bell age 5; Lucy age 3. //// Absalom Tatum & family are on the 1870 Warren co KY census, stamped pg 210B, dwl 124 fam 124, lines 28-35. Although Absalom's name is listed as Abraham & the surname is listed as Taton. If you enlarge this census page you can see the name is Absalum. The family although listed as Taton match the family on 1860 & 1880 census-has to be the same Tatum family. His family in this census are as follows: All born in KY: Absalum 40; Martha 38, Alonzo V 15, Bell L 15, Lucey J 12, Lizzie P 8, Minnie G 6 & a Thomas Maxey. //// Logan co KY 1880 census, Fillmore, stamped pg 579D, dwl 336 fam 336, lines 24-29. All born in KY. Newlin Tatum head 57 {if his age is correct on the other census, he should only be 50 on this census}, mar; Martha wife 47, mar; Elizabeth dau 19, van Dyke son 28, mar physician; Mattie 21 wife of van Dyke 21 mar; Bessie 4m dau of van Dyke 4 months. //// On the death certificate of Bell (Beldavera Clerene (Tatum) Taylor, it lists her parents as A N Tatum & Martha Dunn. Bell's death certificate is on Ancestry under the name of Beldavera Clerene Taylor. Bell is in her father's household on the 1860 & 1870 census listed here. A N Tatum is named in his father's will {Seth} as A N. Just as Alonzo is named in the same will as Alonzo. I believe Seth's will is on Ancestry Family Trees, posted by Ronnie Tatum. Hope this helps.
