Richard B. Nuzum b 29 Nov 1795 Delaware County, PA; married 25 Feb 1816 Virginia (now West Virginia) to Phoebe Springer.

Their Nuzum children:
John S. Nuzum b 1819
Thomas Nuzum b 1821
Job Nuzum b 1825
Lavina Nuzum b 1826
Joel D. Nuzum b 1827
Jane Nuzum b 1828
Edith Nuzum b 1835
Alpheus Nuzum b 1838
Dennis Nuzum b 1839
Edwin T. Nuzum b 1841

Phoebe (Springer0 Nuzum died 8 March 1852; Richard B. Nuzum married a 2nd time to Esther Clark 1 April 1855 Marion County, Virginia (now West Virginia), reported to be a widow at the time of their marriage.

I descend from Richard's second wife, Esther, and her first marriage.

I seek descendants of Esther's two children that appear in the 1860 census - Elbert Clark and Esther Clark. I believe Esther Clark may have married a Benjamin F. Mason 20 Dec 1863 Marion County, Virginia (now West Virginia) as I found a marriage license for an Esther Clark and Benjamin F. Mason.

The 1880 census finds Benjamin F. Mason and Esther Mason residing in Booths Creek, Taylor, West Virginia.

I hope to hear from people who descend from Richard Nuzum that can help me find my Clark and Mason relatives.
