Searching for descendants of William Rhodes Tumbleson, born March 1834, Greenup Co., KY, died 18 Mar 1909 at the home of his daughter, Mary M. Tumbleson Myers, Greenup, Greenup, KY. He was a son of John Tumbleson of Greenup Co., his mother unknown. William married first, Elizabeth A. Stephenson/Stevenson, daughter of Edward Stephenson and Mahalia Crump, about 1853, Greenup Co. They had 5 daughters, 1 son. (my husband and son are the only male Tumblesons carrying on the name from this line.) Children were: 1. Martha Ann Tumbleson, born 8 Oct 1854, Greenup Co., KY, married Henry Clay Bradford, 7 Mar 1877, Greenup Co., son John Calvin Bradford, probably more children. 2. Mary M. Tumbleson, born 19 Jul 1856, Greenup Co., KY, married Allen Myers, Jr., about 1880--their children were Frank Myers, William Myers, Helen Myers, and Mary Allen Myers. Following the death of Allen Myers, Jr., Mary M. Tumbleson married his brother, Alfred Myers, 11 Sep 1889, Greenup Co. Their children were Alfred ("Fred") Myers, Timothy Myers, David Myers, and Lauretta Myers. Mary M. Tumbleson's husbands were sons of Allen and India Callihan Myers. Timothy Myers married Maude Nichols and they had two children, Bonn Myers, and Helen Myers. I'd like to get in touch with someone on Mary M. Tumbleson Myers' line who may have pictures of William Rhodes Tumbleson, or a family bible, as William died in her home in 1909. 3. Sarah J. Tumbleson ("Sadie"), born 16 Aug 1858, Greenup, Co., KY, died Jan 1942 in Ashland, Jackson Co., Oregon, married Carlisle Hunt Callon, 12 Feb 1880, had three sons, Rhodes Callon, Dent Callon, and Roe Paynter Callon. Sarah later married Ira Johnson and moved to Oregon. 4. Louella Tumbleson, born 1860, Greenup Co., married Charles A. Pugh, 15 Feb 1882, Quincy, Lewis, KY. 5. Catharine Minnie Tumbleson, born 11 Nov 1862, Greenup Co., married William L. Berry, 1 Jan 1883, Quincy, Lewis, KY, died 1 Jul 1911, buried on the "Jack Lowder Farm," Lewis Co., KY. 6. Albert Truitt Tumbleson, born 8 Dec 1866, Garrison, Lewis, KY, married Irena Alice Fuller, 24 Dec 1895, Agricola, Coffey, KS, died 9 Aug 1931, Scott City, Scott, KS. They had two sons, Perl Rhode Tumbleson, born 18 Jun 1900, Waverly, Coffey, KS, married Helen Carol Wiley, 15 Jul 1928, Hutchinson, Reno, KS.; Glenn Everett Tumbleson, born 3 Nov 1902, Waverly, Coffey, KS, married Marie Elizabeth Norlin, 1 Feb 1926, Garden City, Finney, KS. William Rhodes Tumbleson remarried after Elizabeth's death. Second wife was Jane Johnson, born about 1838, Lewis Co., KY. They married 23 Feb 1887, Kinney Bottom, Lewis, KY at Jane's father's home. Had no children together. I'd be glad to share info. I have on this family--I hope somebody out there has a family bible or pictures of William Rhodes Tumbleson! Thanks, Karen Tumbleson (My e-mail address will change in April-I'll update it then)e it then)
