I am trying to get information on the wife of Sylvester Marcum( b. 1835, in Wayne Co. Virginia (now - West Virginia)). The 1860 West Virginia births, for “Melissa Marcrum” (yes, the misspelling), the parents are listed as “Sylvester Marcum” and “Sarah Ann Marcum”. Kentucky death records list the death of “Malissa Jobe” as 1916, Place: Twin Branch, Lawrence, Kentucky; Father's Name: Sylvester Marcum, Mother's Name: Sarah Elswich. In the 1880 Cross Roads, Jefferson, Kentucky, census, Sylvester Marcum is listed with his wife’s name as Sallie, with age of 34, and an adopted son: Joseph Marcum, age 1 (my grandfather). The 1900 Lincoln district, Wayne, West Virginia, census lists “Sylvester Marcum” with his wife “Sarah Marcum” and adopted son Joseph H. Marcum. This census also indicated that “Sarah Marcum” had no children. With this information, “Sarah Marcum” would have been 14 years old when “Melissa Marcrum” was born, so “no children” makes sense.
I knew my grandfather (Joseph Herbert Marcum) and I have a picture of him with his older sister “Lizzie” in their 60 - 70’s. I wonder if anyone has information that would help me determine if “Sallie Marcum” is the same “Sarah Marcum” married to “Sylvester Marcum” who is the father of both “Melissa Marcrum” and adoptive father of “Joseph Herbert Marcum”?
