John Mumaw Record

John William? Mumaw, b.ca.1825;

John, married?: (unknown),

This possible marriage is based on family tale that Eliza was the half sister of John H., Oma and Dorie. I do not have anything other than this to go on at this time. The obit of Amelia mentioned "five children to mourn her loss" so there could actually have been two children born to John's first marriage. Through oral tradition it is said that John was married before and had a daughter who is listed below. I haven't found any record of the previous marriage yet but I do believe it is true. In the marriage record for he and 2nd wife below it lists her as being "single" while his status is left blank. In one of the marriage records John is listed as "John H.". In the record for son John Henry on the Mumma.org website he is mentioned as "John William". One more fact, the marriage date for John & Amelia is much later than the time Eliza was born making it unlikely she is a child of John's marriage to Amelia. Further info. on John and family found in the Mumma.org database.
