Re: Pulliam---Davenport 1895

In Reply to: Pulliam---Davenport 1895 by Nina Strodtman of 287

I found David J. Pullum and Octavia Davenport in the 1900 Perry County Census Index. They are listed in Bois Brule Township and are family #289.

Pullum, David J. age 55 Feb. 1845 born MO father born NC mother born TN
Octava age 20 Feb. 1880 MO MO MO
Everet F. age 4 April 1896 MO MO MO
Charles H. age 2 Mar. 1898 MO MO MO
Davenport, Mary (mother in law) age 48 May 1852 MO MO MO

The entry says that Octava was the mother of 2 children with both still being alive. Mary is listed as the mother 1 child with that child still being alive. It says that David was married 24 years and that Octava was married 4 years (I think it suppose to say David was married 2 times, currently married for 4 years). You'll need to check the actual census to clarify this.

Pullums and Davenports don't appear in the 1880 Perry County Census index. No other Davenports appear in the 1900 Perry Co Census Index. The other Pullums that do appear are in Brazeau Township (family #398 and 400, both being related to each other). Their family is as follows:

Father: W.T. Pullum born Sep 1839 in VA, both parents born in VA. Married about 1862.
Mother: Sarah ____ born May 1840 in TN, both parents born in TN. Sarah died 28 August 1901 is buried at Shiloh Lutheran Church Cemetery near Seventy-Six (Perry County), MO.

Garris, 2 August 1891 in Seventy-Six, MO. Emma then married James Rhyne, 12 May 1906 in Perry County, MO. In the 1900 Perry County Census, she is listed as the mother of 5 children with only 3 still being alive (1 Pullum and 2 Garris). In the 1910 census, it says she was the mother of 6 children with only 3 still being alive. Her children by James W. Garris were Asburn Eligea (born Oct. 1893 in MO) and James L. (born April 1899 in MO). Her only know child by James Rhyne was Emma C. (born 31 May 1908 and died 25 April 1908, buried Shiloh Lutheran Cemetery).

4. Benjamin Pullum
Benjamin was born 16 January 1877 in IL and died 4 July 1906 in Perry County, MO. He is buried at Shiloh Lutheran Church. In the 1900 Census he is listed as an invalid.

All the Pullum that are mentioned above as being buried at Shiloh have tombstones. If there are others buried there, they don't have stones anymore. I have done a lot of research on this cemetery because almost everyone buried there is related to me. I descend from the Hughey, Swan and Farrar Families that are buried there. I am related to the Rhyne, Parker, Swank, etc Families too.

I'm sure your David must somehow be related to the Brazeau Pullums but I couldn't tell you how. I hope this has helped you (even if it only gives some leads to check out).

Good luck with your search!
