Debbie: This is a long shot, but there was a Jasper McCollum born May 1850 in Louisville, Kentucky, who could possibly be a grandson of Samuel Ellis McCollum born 1789 and the son of Samuel McCollum, born 1826. Jasper later moved to Missouri, where he married Mary Jane Steen (also spelled Stein)in 1876. Mary Jane was born in Ridgeland, MO, 15 Apr 1864. Their son, Samuel McCollum, was born in Missouri Nov. 1880 and married Bessie (Elizabeth?) Ellison there in 1907. Bessie was born in Arkansas 13 May 1892. All four of them (and possibly other family members)later moved to Oklahoma, where Samuel and Bessie had 6 children. Samuel and Bessie named their eldest daughter Sarah.
Jasper died in Bristow, OK, 26 Feb 1926; Mary Jane died in Pawnee, OK, in 1937; Bessie died in Bristow, OK,in 1938 and Samuel died there in 1957.
If you find a connection or discover the parents of your Samuel McCollum,please let me know. Shirley (email@example.com
