Hello to all of you that I have spoken with in the past. I have recently obtained a copy of my grandmothers journal. These are her entries and I am trying to confirm/find these people. If you know these people or think you do, please contact me/post response. PLEASE HELP!!
John Riley Prettyman b. Jefferson City, MO 12-20-1858
married Mary Catherine Gumley (b. MO 07-14-1861) marriage date is 08-17-1882
They had the following children: May Bell (Mabel)b. 07-21-1884; Alice b. 08-12-1886; Clarence b.01-05-1888; Bertha b. 12-08-1889; Jess b. 12-21-1891; Winnie b.01-26-1895; Bert Wesley b. 10-25-1897; Fred David (*my grandfather)b.01-25-1901; Hannah Elizabeth b.01-12-1904.
I do have who most of these people married and the parents and siblings of Mary Catherine Gumley. I have not been able to find John Riley and Mary Catherine. Have found out bits and pieces of their children. I was just told a couple of days ago that Clarence was born in Illinios but not much else known about this clan. Hoping someone will respond. Thanks!!
