Researching father of Currency Gummere(b. 1842)
Harlan Gummere/Gumery/Gummery/Gumeri/Gumore b. 1806 PA or OH
Harlan married (1)Mary A. Clark b. VA 1810
1856 IA Jefferson co Liberty T, Harlan Gummere, Mary/family
Mary A. Clark Gummery may have died between 1856-1860 in IA
I believe he married (2)Mrs. Eliza Hough Hosier, widow between 1856 & 1860. According
to his son Currency bio Harlan farmed 2 years at Jefferson co. IA and then to Mahaska co.
Oskaloosa before moving 1859 to IL
In 1856 census Mahaska Cedar IA Eliza Hough Hosier is widow of William Hosier b. IN with 2
sons Geo. & James b. IN living next door to her mother Hannah Hough. (Hannah migrated
to IA from IN with 5 of her grown children in 1848)
Oskaloosa is 10 miles from Fremont both in Mahaska co. IA.
1860 IL Hancock co. census Harlan Gummery, Eliza and 3 of Harlan's Children. Nearby
lives Eliza's son James W. Hosier.
Sadly in 1865 Eliza Gummere is a widow living in Leavenworth co. Alexandria KS in the
census next door to her son James W. Hosier. Harlan must have died 1860-1865 IL or KS.
Eliza Hough Hosier Gummere is in my family tree and I was raised in Mahaska county IA near
Can anyone help me fill in the missing marriage dates, places, and deaths of Mary Clark
Gummere & Harlan Gummere.
