First Generation

1. Ethel Lee Brannum 1-8 was born on 9 Nov 1880 in Missouri. She appeared in the census in 1900 in Hornersville, Dunklin, Missouri. She appeared in the census in 1910 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri. She appeared in the census in 1920 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri. She appeared in the census in 1930 in Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri. She appeared in the census in 1940 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri. She died on 22 Dec 1963 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob). She was buried in Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri - Oak Ridge Cem.

See the long note on first husband Allen Horner for Ethel. I'm 85% sure this is the proper woman and chain of events, but 15% doubtful.


Albert, her second husband, doesn't last long.

Ethel Lee Brannum and Allen Horner were married on 10 Aug 1899 in Hornersville, Dunklin, Missouri. Allen Horner 1,2,9,10 (son of Harrison Horner and Amanda Edmonston ) was born on 12 Jul 1872 in Dunklin County, Missouri. He appeared in the census in 1880 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri. He appeared in the census in 1900 in Hornersville, Dunklin, Missouri. He died on 11 Sep 1905 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob). He was buried in Hornersville, Dunklin, Missouri - Horner Cem.


We start with a marriage record:

Marriage: 10 Aug 1899, Homersville, Dunklin, Missouri
A Hom, age 21
Miss Ethel Brannum, age 18

The pre-printed marriage record form says "_____ 21 years of age" for the groom, "___ 18 years of age" for the bride. the clerk is supposed to write "over", "under" or "of", but in this case wrote "of" in each blank. Since Allen was 27 at the time, it was off by 6 years. His name is transcribed as "Hom" but looks like it could be "Horn". In any event, it isn't obvious that this is our Allen. But, in 1900, our Allen is living next door to his widowed mother with a bride Ethel, and they have been married for a year. Allen will (probably) die in 1905, and Ethel will (probably) marry Alfred T Bibb, who is in the next household.

Find-a-Grave:

Al Horner
Birth: Jul. 12, 1872
Death: Sep. 11, 1905
Horners Cemetery, Hornersville, Dunklin, Missouri

This is probably our Allen.

Arguments for:

1) The Horner children who are step-children of Alfred T Bibb and Ethel in 1910 show that Allen stopped fathering children about 1905

2) Al is a common nickname for Allen.

3) Birth year matches the 1880; birth month and year match the 1900 census.

Arguments against:

I can't find a death record. This is all circumstantial.


Ethel Lee Brannum and Allen Horner had the following children:

+2 i. Manley Horner , born on 8 Nov 1901, Dunklin County, Missouri (prob); married Ethel Rhew , on 20 Mar 1926, Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri; died on 5 May 1994, Hornersville, Dunklin, Missouri (LR).

+4 iii. Allen Horner , born on 2 Aug 1904, Dunklin County, Missouri (prob); married Dorace E (Dorsie) , on 3 Oct 1925, Hornersville, Dunklin, Missouri; died on 7 Sep 1992, Hornersville, Dunklin, Missouri (LR).

Ethel Lee Brannum and Alfred T Bibbs were married in 1906/7 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob). Alfred T Bibbs 1,3 was born in May 1887 in Missouri. He appeared in the census in 1900 in Hornersville, Dunklin, Missouri. He appeared in the census in 1910 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri. He died between 1914 and 1919 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob).
This is a repeat; the same three are in Allen Horner's notes.

"A Horner" (Allen) there in HH 265 will die in 1905 and his widow Ethel will marry Alfred T, in HH 267 in 1906 or 1907.

I can't find a marriage record. I'm using proximity for proof; that and the three Horner children - one named Allen - who are born up to 1905, when "Al" Horner died, according to his Find-a-Grave entry.


Ethel is a widow in 1920; her youngest is 6 years old, thus borh 1913/14. I estimated Alfred'a death date from that. Ethel Lee Brannum and Alfred T Bibbs had the following children:

+5 i. Lydia Esther (Littie) Bibbs , born on 29 Sep 1909, Dunklin County, Missouri (prob); married Earl C Morris , on 17 Sep 1927, Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri; died on 16 Apr 1982, Dunklin County, Missouri (prob).

+6 ii. Elsie Viola Bibbs , born on 13 Jun 1911, Dunklin County, Missouri (prob); married Troy Franklin Morris , on 1 Oct 1929, Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri; died on 15 Mar 1987, Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri (LR).

+7 iii. Flossie Bibbs , born on 11 Nov 1913, Dunklin County, Missouri (prob); married Fred (Speculative) Maynard , on 16 May 1931, Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri; died in Sep 1995, Linesville, Crawford, Pennsylvania (LR).

Ethel Lee Brannum and John M Spradling were married on 24 Dec 1929 in Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri. John M Spradling 5-7,11 was born on 22 Nov 1870 in Missouri. He appeared in the census in 1930 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri. He appeared in the census in 1940 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri. He died on 23 Nov 1964 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob).

He is Manley H in 1930, Alfred H in 1940, Manley Lee in his obituary:

Manley Lee Horner Jr. was born March 30, 1929, in Flint, Mich., to Ethel Marie and Manley Lee Horner, of Hornersville, Mo.

Manley passed away on Oct. 31, 2012, in San Francisco, Calif., after a lengthy struggle with vascular disease, diabetes and dementia.

Manley lead a vibrant and extraordinary life. He was a graduate of Hornersville High School, and the University of Southern Missouri at Cape Girardeau, Mo.

He joined the Marine Corps and was a fighter pilot in the Korean War. He became a commercial pilot for TWA for many years, and also flew for Lockheed Aircraft in Africa for a while.

He was a man who did not know the words" cannot do", and he encouraged all around him to try anything at least once. Manley was a kind and gentle man, who loved nature, all animals and most of all his family. He was well read, and many times recited long portions of Shakespeare to the amazement of his audience.

He lived for the last thirty some years near San Francisco; however he never lost his ties with his roots in Hornersville. In his later years he enjoyed driving back and forth with his dog, Daisy. He loved the piece of land he owned and tended. He had a passion for growing tomatoes, and would feed some to me so I could taste a "real" tomato. It was his dream to turn his acreage in Missouri into a Nature Preserve and Park, so he started by ordering hundreds of indigenous trees and planting them. Illness forced him to give up his ambitious project though, and he always spoke about how sad it was that he could not complete this dream.

Manley is survived by his wife of 40 years, Helga, and by his three children from his first marriage, Daniel Lee Horner, Teresa Ann Horner-Keyes, and Anna Marie Horner.

A memorial is planned for some time in early spring of 2013 in Hornersville.

Cause of death was "Carbolic acid poisoning - self inflicted." Elsie Viola Bibbs and Troy Franklin Morris had the following children:

24 i. Barbara J Morris 40 was born in 1931/32 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob). She appeared in the census in 1940 in Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri.

25 ii. Robert Lee Morris 40 was born in 1934/35 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob). He appeared in the census in 1940 in Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri.

7. Flossie Bibbs 4,6,7,42-44 was born on 11 Nov 1913 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob). She appeared in the census in 1920 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri. She appeared in the census in 1930 in Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri. She appeared in the census in 1940 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri. She died in Sep 1995 in Linesville, Crawford, Pennsylvania (LR).

Flossie remarries:

Marriage: 14 Nov 1944, Greene Co, Arkansas

Name: Frank P Dybzinski
Residence Place: Cleveland, Ohio

Spouse: Flossie Irene Maynard
Residence Place: Kennett, Missouri

and dies:

Flossie Dybzinski, 11 Nov 1913 - Sep 1995
Last Residence: Linesville, Crawford, Pennsylvania
Last Benefit: Painesville, Lake, Ohio
SSN issued: Missouri (Before 1951)

Flossie Bibbs and Fred (Speculative) Maynard were married on 16 May 1931 in Kennett, Dunklin, Missouri. Fred (Speculative) Maynard 42,45 was born in 1905/6 in Kentucky. He died between 1932 and 1940 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob).

Fred married after 1930 and died before 1940, so I can't find him on the census. This one looks about right. He's the only Fred Maynard in Dunklin County in 1930. But, there are a lot of Fred Maynards around, and Flossie could have met her Fred while visiting cousins in Chicago, for all I know.

Flossie is (probably) a widow in 1940:

Maynard, Ethel J, stepgr-son [dau], 8, in 2nd grade, Mo

Women whose husbands divorced or deserted would often say "widowed" in the census. I can't find a death record for Fred. Flossie Bibbs and Fred (Speculative) Maynard had the following children:

26 i. Ethel J Maynard 7 was born in 1931/32 in Dunklin County, Missouri (prob). She appeared in the census in 1940 in Clay Twp, Dunklin, Missouri.
