  • Name: Reuben Stephen ?Rube? TATUM

  • Note:

    Named for his grandfather, Reuben G. Tatum.

    His mother was Susannah Taylor Tatum. She died 19 days after he was born.
    He was not on the 1860 census with William & his 2nd wife, Mary Ann, but he was on the 1870 census with his father after William had married Caroline. He may have been with his Taylor grandparents in 1860.

    Stoddard County, Mo. Marriages:
    Reuben Tatum married Thomas E. [maybe Thomasine] Larue, 23 Dec 1877
    Reuben Tatum married Sarah Helm, 24 Dec 1879.
    Not sure if both these marriages are for this Reuben. His first 2 children, Ellen & Audrey, were probably by Sarah, because they had no children with them on the 1880 census. [Of course Thomasine may have had a baby and left it with her parents. This is what happened to Reuben himself when his mother died.]

    Reuben moved to Arkansas, soon after his 1879 marriage, where they are on on the 1880 census of Lawrence Co, Campbell twp, Ark.
